Budgies and Celebrities

Kim Novak

Bird Note: Another pet story concerns the parakeet – lavender colored, of course – Kim Novak bought in New York while she was here filming Bell, Book and Candle. For weeks Kim tried to teach the parakeet to talk, in vain. After each of these sessions, the only sound heard was Kim Novak’s sigh of resignation, “I give up…” Miss Novak now has the ¬†parakeet in her Hollywood home, where visitors can hear the bird speak only one line, “I give up.” – St. Petersburg Times

Painting by Kim Novak – who is also an amazing artist. You can see her paintings here.

    • I couldn’t find a photo of her with her budgie (boo), so the Times story and the painting she did will have to do. There was another account of her having a parakeet in a biography about Warren Beatty : ).
