GeneKG, we are kindred spirits, at least as far as Bette is concerned. You have named my favorites (with the possible exception of [i]Baby Jane[/i], though I like that one too)

Heston, Charlton....*Will Penny* (seemed his most personal performance)

Kelly, Gene ;)

Yayy!!! I bet y'all weren't expecting that were ya? Haha.
Well, I will name 2. My fave musical is Singin' In the Rain. And fave non-musical is The Three Musketeers. But I also really enjoyed Inherit the Wind. A very different role for him, but he played it well.

O'Brien, Margaret ~ child actress, considered a genius by some, stole the movie Meet Me In St' Louis with her stunning performance as Tootie, showing her morbid side by being fascinated
by death ie; killing her dolls and giving them a proper buriel, her film credits include the child in
Jane Eyre, (complete with french accent) and the creepy child in Unfinished Dance opening the trap door to allow a dancer to fall and injure herself ..she also played Amy in Little Women,
her finest performance which gave her a superb death scene...

Quinn, Anthony - superb actor who excelled in every aspect of the great variety of roles given him
watch him as the heavy in City for Conquest, then later in Zorba the Greek or as Paul Gaugan
in Lust for Life what impresses most is his longivity and his versitility...and underscored in all his performances was a verile manliness that gave his acting extra punch...

R - GINGER ROGERS

As she said, she did everything Fred Astaire did, only in high heels & backwards. Loved those
movies.

Also, her non-dancing roles such as "Kitty Foyle", "Bachelor Mother", "Stage Door"
(a little dancing), "Tender Comrade", "Magnificent Doll", "Once Upon A Honeymoon"

Smith, Alexis ---Warner star from the forties, seen with Errol Flynn in many westerns and
with Cary Grant in Night and Day..went to Broadway in the seventies and burned up the stage in
Follies..tall and elegant, she earned her way as a screen icon and beauty, although she is often overlooked when the lists of BESTS are written...
