    She is enchanting! In my mind, Edwardian ladies, even "common folk" are the pinnacle of beauty. :) To me, there is none more stunning than Maude Fealy.

    Her beauty is so exquisite as to be ethereal. :)
     
  2. So y'all can know why I picked Lupe Velez, Hollywood's so-called "Mexican Spitfire," here are some photos of her:

  3. Well, assuming we're talking about taking Doc Brown's DeLorean out for a test-drive to a dinner-date, I'd probably call "preferred option" a toss-up between Audrey Hepburn ca. Breakfast at Tiffany's filming or Daniela Bianchi ca. From Russia With Love.

    For contemporary, ditch the Hollywood twits, my first picks would be some of the ladies of the Lounge!;) (But I'll never tell which ones... that would be both gossiping and ungentlemanly! At least one of 'em knows it, though...;) lol )

    Katharine Hepburn. Grace, style and attitude.

    I got The Philadelphia Story for to see Grant, but Katharine carbonated my hormones. :rolleyes:

    If I had to pick one girl from the golden era...

    ...she wouldn't be a star. She would only ever appear in one film, an experimental mood piece made by a college friend who was crazy in love with her but couldn't find a way to say it.

    When the film was done, his true feelings were obvious in the camera's adoring eye. He proposed. She accepted. They lived happily ever after.

    She was beautifull back then - and she's even more beautifull to day.

    So if I had to pick one I'd pick at least 4:
    Hedy Lamarr - check out "Algiers" 1937
    Alice Faye - What a woman!!!
    http://www.alicefaye.com/
    Lelie Caron - "Gigi" - 1958, "Lili" 1953, etc., etc.
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001989/
    Maria Schell - sister of Maximillian, a tragic beauty
    http://www.filmreference.com/Actors-and-Actresses-Ro-Sc/Schell-Maria.html
    Glynis Johns - adorable! Check out "Miranda" 1948, the "prequel" to "Splash".
    http://www.britmovie.co.uk/actors/j/006.html
    and I'd have to include Carol Landis in that group, too.

    I'm still sticking with the lovely lady in my avatar, Christine McIntyre. Pretty, smart, and blessed with a gorgeous voice, she's my choice from that era.

    Just don't get on her bad side. Look what happened to Shemp in BRIDELESS GROOM.

    Oh fur sure, she is a beauty, and Shemp in Brideless Groom was Hilarious, "Your little dream boat is sailing away" lol

    But for me, I'll take Veronica Lake as in Sullivan's Travels, talk about gorgeous! which reminds me of Traci Lords!!! ;)

    Speaking of dolls. . . er, photos: Root, your uncanny ability to find photos of classic era actresses astounds me. But, who is in the photo that Harry Anderson, as Judge Harry Stone of Night Court, has hanging on the wall behind his office desk? He named her in one episode (the one where he covers her eyes with a Post-It, I think), but darned if I can remember.


    Thank you,

    Lee

    Okay, I'm in Fantasyland!

    Jennifer Connelly! Ohhh, MY! Did a job on my heart in Career Oportunities; Flew me to the moon in The Rocketeer; A shining star in Dark City (especially in the green number she wears on stage near the beginning); Absolutely BEAUTIFUL in A Beautiful Mind. (Be still, my heart.) She just keeps getting better and better! And I could stare into her gorgeous green eyes all day!! :eusa_clap

    If I were the obsessive type, she'd have a stalker! lol

    That was the lovely Jean Harlow behind Judge Stone's desk.

    Night Court is such a guilty pleasure for me (I'm sure some of it is due to Harry's hats).
