Yes, Jon Hall is correct.  We have them all now.  Since lavender and Princess don't post photos, maybe Lawrence will be kind enough to post the next one.

Thanks, Lawrence and Princess.  Every one that you both named is correct, but we don't have number 7 yet.  He was married to a popular singer.  He also starred in two "invisible man" movies.

#7. is Jon Hall. I'd know him anywhere. I used Jon Hall and his wife Frances Langford in the HUSBAND AND WIFE thread as a question a few months back.

Thanks.  Well, we recently had the "Bombshells".  It's time we showcased the other gender for the ladies.  We'll call these guys "The Hollywood Hunks".  Some  may not have been regarded as major stars, but they all are well known.  Can you name them?

Yes, Marie McDonald had quite a life, short as it was, with six husbands and several affairs, including one with mobster Bugsy Seigel, Princess, I hope that you meant that Harry Karl was a shoe "magnate" and not "magnet".

Since Princess got four and Rich got four, we have a tie, but Princess doesn't post pictures, so Rich (scsu1975) gets to post next. I'll be out all day, so I'll check back this evening.

Miles-- I use the microphone without a spell-checker. But from now on, since you volunteered for the job, you can be my new mic spell-checker Sans Benefits. LOL

Let's see-- I got 1,2,& 8. Apparently we still need 7--

Marie "The Body" McDonald-- was only interesting to me because she and Debbie Reynolds shared a husband. That Infamous shoe magnet, Harry Karl.

Marie also co-starred in a film with Gene Kelly called Living in a Big Way.

Very good, Rich.  Cleo Moore and Beverly Michaels both worked with "B" movie maker Hugo Haas.  Haas dropped Beverly in favor of Cleo.  Beverly had a sort of hard edge to her.  She made a couple of "women in prison" movies.  I saw her in a TV episode of "Cheyenne" on the Encore Western Channel.  

 

We don't have number 7 yet.  She was known as "The Body".

She also started in movies in the 1940's.

 

Any guesses?

Number one is Sheree North. She made the rounds and was in some "A" movies, but I'm not a fan. So I don't know very much about her.

The last lady at number 8 is Barbara Nichols. She was the number one cheap blonde in the "A" movies and in the top -Classic TV shows.

I always felt that her role in The Sweet Smell of Success should have garnered her an Oscar nomination. She played Tony Curtis's girlfriend whom he forced to do things that were entirely unfair - - but this truly showed his character's real personality.

Barbara also shined in one Untouchables episode co-starring with the great Nehemiah Persoff, who embodied Al Capone's bookkeeper, Jake "Greasy Thumb" Guzik.

Barbara had singing and dancing talent, along with her looks and acting ability. So she proved that there was nothing cheap about her professionalism as a performer.

2. I always was a big fan of Joi Lansing. She was Classic Television's Marilyn Monroe. She started out as Bob Cummings top model on Love that Bob, but ended up on The Beverly Hillbillies as Scruggs or Flatts' sophisticated "Citified-wife" who Granny couldn't teach a "dern" thing to.

Sadly the very thing that helped to make her a big star also killed her-- breast implants--which led to breast cancer in her early forties.

Now, I'm about to drop a bombshell on you, actually several "Bombshells".  You're all familiar with Marilyn Monroe's appeal and the fact that several studios, including her own, tried to find young women, mostly blonde, to rival Marilyn.  Some, like Jayne Mansfield and Mamie Van Doren became quite well known.  Some others were less successful.  I'm not going to use that old line about them having small parts, because, as you know, none of their parts were small.  Some of their roles, however, were rather minor.  Here are some actresses of the forties and fifties who were considered to be "Bombshells".  Can you identify them?

I'm sorry to report that both Noreen and Kevin Corcoran are dead.

Kevin in October 2015 and Noreen a few months later in January 2016.


I also heard "Lumpy" had died as well.
