Melina Mercouri - Modern Greece never had a better embasador than her. Her smile and laugh were contagious as evidenced in the great film, "Never On Sunday". Her work as an actress was preparation for her important role as Greece's Cultural Minister where she fought a brave and worthy battle for the return of the "Elgin Marbles" to Greece. She stared in a documentary about Athens in the 80s that was fabulous. Love to see it again someday!
