    Garbo - Guiness book of records

    Gosh, randy, I don't know what to say! I try, in my own small way, to excite and contribute without degradation or insult. There are so many on these boards who try to discover the "truth!" They don't understand that the truth is relative. My truth isn't necessarily your truth. So, being who I am, I truly love all of them. At my age, I have discovered the beauty and value and illusion of all of them, including Joan Crawford, whom I hated most of my life. I have my favorites, but it doesn't blind me to the worth of all of them. They all contributed to the body of film. It is so wonderful to be able to say, "I hate her!" "I love him!" "That was a great film!" "He was a terrible director!" But, all in all, they were ALL fabulous, and I am so grateful to have been able to get to know each one of them, especially GARBO and LAMARR! Ha!

    Garbo - Guiness book of records

    Randy, that was so well said. I couldn't agree more. There is room for both at the top, and in my opinion they are Hedy and Greta! Funny, but those are the two on MY walls.

    God, I love NORMA! I can never get enough of her. I could eat her with a spoon!

    Greta Garbo

    Yes, they are so deep and full of meaning. Someone in one of her documentaries once said you don't need anything else when you have Garbo's eyes.

    Chick Flick Chit Chat

    Well, as I understand it, a chick-flick is anything that doesn't have the man as its focal point. It is not a war movie or a western. So, that leaves the field wide open. Camille is definitely a chick-flick: the story of a courtesan that ends in tears. Oh, maybe that is another definition, tears. But, I think it makes the woman the focal point. Anyway, some of my favorite chick-flicks: Topper That Hamilton Woman Imitation of Life Ivy Gilda Midnight The Devil is a Woman Carrie

    Elizabeth Taylor An Intimate Portrait

    I agree! Here is one with Natalie. Although she turned into a beauty, she was no match for Liz!
