 Oakland, California.Ben Patterson came to the public conscious merely five years ago in a short stint as a patron on the reality show “Model Citizens.” Now, the apotheosis of the eccentric subterranean tabula rasa actor, Ben has an established fan base as one of the elite black indie actors, and has become friends with some of the best in the business. Embodying the sex-on-a-stick rocker with ferocious blowtorch-intensity in his freestyle funk bandSapphire Sky, Ben is hardly a paint-by-numbers kind of guy.




Moira Orfei, (aka Miranda Orfei), (b. 21 December 1931 Codroipo) a popular Italian actress and television personality. Moira is considered the queen of the Italian circus.

Raised in a family who owned the circus company Circus Orfei, Moira became the symbol of circus in Italy and attained international fame. The Circus Moira Orfei itself was founded in 1960. Moira has been photographed in various scenes as a rider, trapeze artist, acrobat, dominatrice of elephants and trainer of doves.
Moira's excessively garish image mirrors her eccentric and exuberant personality. It was Dino De Laurentiis who suggested that she change her name from Miranda to Moira. From then on, Moira's face became an effigy of unchanging characteristics: heavy make-up with eyes coated with eyeliner, bright lipstick, an accentuated mole above the lip, hair tied in a turban. Promotional billboards where carpeted with this picture in every city that the circus stopped. As a result, Moria has become one of the most recognized faces in Italy.
Almost by chance, Moira also became a film actress, acting in over forty films, from comedies to Sword and sandal films (among which many Italian crime films). It has been said that if Moria had studied drama she could have been good as Sophia Loren.

Suzy Parker (October 28, 1932 – May 3, 2003) was an American model and actress active from 1947 into the early 1960s. Her modeling career reached its zenith during the 1950s when she appeared on the cover of dozens of magazines, advertisements, and in movie and television roles.
She appeared in several Revlon advertisements, but she also appeared in advertisements for many other cosmetic companies as well, as no model had an exclusive make-up contract until Lauren Hutton (for Revlon and Revlon's Ultima) and Karen Graham (Estée Lauder) signed them in the early 1970s. She was the first model to earn $100,000 per year and the only fashion model to have a Beatles song named after her, even if an unreleased one

She was the first model to earn $200 per hour and $100,000 per year. Vogue declared her one of the faces of the confident, post-war American woman.
However, by 1955, she owed income taxes on her modeling income from previous years, amounting to more than $60,000 in back taxes and rapidly accumulating penalties, an enormous amount at the time.[7]Jerry Ford paid her tax bill and found her assignments. She worked also non-stop for VogueRevlon, Hertz, Westinghouse, Max Factor, Bliss, DuPont, Simplicity, Smirnoff, and Ronson shavers, to name a few. She also was on the covers of about 70 magazines around the world, including VogueElleLifeLookRedbookParis Match and McCall's.
Avedon suggested Parker for the movie Funny Face (1957). Fred Astaire's role was based on Avedon, whose photos appeared in the movie. Audrey Hepburn's role was inspired by Suzy, just as Hepburn's role inBreakfast at Tiffany's was supposedly based on Dorian's promiscuous lifestyle. Suzy appeared in the movie for only about two minutes.

Her other credits included Kiss Them for Me opposite Cary Grant (1957), The Best of Everything (1959), Ten North Frederick starring Gary Cooper (1959), Circle of Deception (1960) during which she met future husband Bradford DillmanFlight from Ashiya (1964), Chamber of Horrors (1966) and dramatic roles in TV shows such asBurke's Law and The Twilight Zone plus appearances as herself on a number of quiz shows like I've Got a Secret.
After marrying her third husband, Dillman, in 1963, and suffering further injuries in another car accident in 1964, she mostly retired from modeling and acting to live a quiet life in Montecito, California, with her family.
