Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis

As far as long-lasting Hollywood couple's go, we don't think anyone has been able to outpace Dee and Davis. The actors were married in 1948 and remained dedicated to each other for nearly sixty years. Davis passed away in 2005, and when Ruby Dee followed him to heaven this month, she left behind not only a legacy on the stage and screen, but in love and commitment as well.
