    Continuing thread resuscitation... I've been partial to Ingrid Bergman, sweetheart of the WW II 82nd Airborne!

    You would have to be a real fan of dancing to know who this is:

    But if you saw her with her dance partner................

    The lady who did everything her partner did, backwards, in high heels.

    I now add an additional pic to my Anne Shirley crush with another great one!

    Rick made the correct call in Casablanca. Heroic, self-sacrificing, no pause-for-the-cause guy that he was.

    Me, myself, and I-no way I am giving up Illsa. The hell with the script.
    I'd whisk her off to Dublin, no twowaysaboutiteither. Red meat, hard liquor, and soft beautiful Ingrid Bergman.;)

    So tragic, dead at age 50, combination hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver. Such a doll.

    Well, I gotta pick Mom (b. 1920). Because without her, I would have never encountered the others!

    I may be a little biased, but I'd have to go with my Mom:

    ^^^^. He said “Hedy Lamar,” not “Hedley Lamarr.” :) Personally, I would go for Lili Von Schtupp any time. :D

    (I’m sorry, Harvey Korman cracks me up every time... especially if he is going “off script” with Tim Conway and Carol Burnett.)

    In addition to others I may have posted, I've got to add Ms. Monroe:

    Hedy is an easy choice. Smart as a whip too. There's a fantastic double entendre here, intimate but not state,
    reference the verb not the adjective. ;)

    I just came across this thread while browsing through the FL. If the Golden Era is primarily the 1920s and 1930s then based exclusively on physical appearance and the movie personna I would go with Jean Harlow and Louise Brooks.

    For what it is worth (probably nothing), one thing I did not care for with regard to Audrey Hepburn was that she smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a day. She was a very attractive women but the cigarettes are a deal killer for me.

    My mother died from cigarette addiction emphysema at sixty years age, just as the grandchildren were
    beginning to appear on scene and she knew she would miss a great deal. She started smoking in high school
    and the habit stuck like glue until she passed.
