    World's Oldest Profession in movies

    *The Red Lily,* 1924: Enid Bennett becomes separated from her lover, becomes a prostitute to survive. Great film. *Waterloo Bridge*, 1931: Mae Clarke becomes a prostitute during World War I when she loses her job as a chorus girl and thinks her fiance on the war front, has been killed. Same for Vivien Leigh in the 1940 remake, with changes to sanitize because of the Hays code. She is a ballerina in a prestigious company. Then becomes a prostitute after losing her job and finding no other means to survive thinking her fiance has been killed. *The World of Suzy Wong*, 1960: Nancy Kwan plays a Chinese prostitute. William Holden falls for her. *BUtterfield 8*, 1960: Elizabeth Taylor plays a high class call girl. Won Best Actress. Edited by: Roberta109 on Jan 7, 2012 10:25 PM

    Any Janet Gaynor fans? While not a classic beauty, she was a wonderful Academy Award Best Actress from silents to talkies. One of my favorites is A Star is Born, 1937, with Fredric March: janet gaynor

    Miscegenation in Hollywood

    The World of Suzie Wong, 1960, is a beautiful love story set Hong Kong between a Caucasian American (William Holden) and a Chinese prostitute (Nancy Kwan). The relationship blossoms with a bittersweet ending. But the couple are deeply in love and committed to each other. http://fan.tcm.com/_William-Holden-38-Nancy-Kwan-The-World-of-Suzie-Wong/video/1640403/66470.html

    Another Man Men fan here. But prefer to watch it on Netflix to avoid commercials. I don't like the Christina Hendricks character at all. Yes, she's beautiful and sexy but empty-headed and thinks she's Queen Bee of the secretary pool. Am a big fan of redhead Betty (Elizabeth Moss). My favorite of the Mad Men females. I love the way she puts up with so much garbage from the executives. She be a CEO if it weren't the 50's. elisabeth moss

    I thought Lana Turner was a natural brunette. Whatever.. to me she was a beauty regardless of hair color and an under-rated actress. She gave an Oscar worthy performance in Madame X, 1966 (age 45) looking very drab and unglamorous. Here she is auburn hair at age 18 (1939): Madame X scene:
