An awesome broad; the perpetual best friend or "Girl Friday"; good in everything I've seen her in. My favorite films of hers: Mildred Pierce and Advise and Consent. Love her on the radio, too. She'll always be Connie Brooks to me.
Gorgeous, gorgeous voice, great actress, and still with us. Glorious in musicals and fantastic as uber-bitch Veda in Mildred Pierce.
Vulnerably delightful in everything I've seen her in. My favorite films of hers: Vicki, Dangerous Crossing, and A Letter to Three Wives.
Amazing actress. Icon. I wish she didn't have the "Mommy Dearest" image she does now, for her accomplishments, drive, beauty, and character were so much more than that. My favorite Joan films: Basically everything - even the cheesy horror films at the end. If I had to pick, these are the highlights: Mildred Pierce, Autumn Leaves, Harriet Craig, When Ladies Meet, The Women, and Susan and God.
Stunningly beautiful and a good actress. While I enjoy her as the iconic sweet vampire housewife Lily Munster, she was a great actress, too. My favorite Yvonne films: The Ten Commandments and Band of Angels.
Funny in everything. A great gal pal and "Girl Friday". Fabulous in the Torchy Blane series and We're in the Money.
Simply love her in all of her films. I love her more as herself in her 1950s radio program The Phil Harris - Alice Faye Show. Beautiful, funny, amazing singing voice, one of my favorites.
Love her in all of her films, but her vulnerability in Rebecca was touching and endearing to me.
Beauty and spunk make her a must on my list. My favorite Paulette films: The Women, The Ghost Breakers, and Nothing But the Truth.
Funny, vulnerable, gorgeous, amazing, and lost way too soon. Harlow is a gem on screen and we were blessed to have even the small number of films she left us. My favorites include: Libeled Lady, Wife vs. Secretary, and Red Dust.
Agnes was an amazing actress. Another I feel is sadly remembered only for her t.v. work. While she was great in films like Dark Passage, radio is where she really shined. I challenge anyone to listen to one of her portrayals of "Sorry Wrong Number" on Suspense and not get the chills. The first time I heard it, I cried. The power, emotion, and energy she puts in a performance is breathtaking.
A delightful bathing beauty, I adore her swimming films. They are just pure pleasure. I can watch them over and over. They just make me happy.
