Would you rather?!

255 posts in this topic

Hello everyone! I thought I would try to create another new thread, and I hope it takes off.

 

Directions:

So how this goes is, I'll ask a question "Would you rather...?" and the next poster answers it and leaves a question for the next person, etc. Let's keep it friendly, respectful, kind. After all it's for fun! I'm thinking maybe between each question refresh and wait a couple minutes otherwise questions/answers will be trampled over each other. Have fun everyone!! :)

 

 

 

Would you rather date Rock Hudson or Dirk Bogarde?

(and yes, as a male, I would answer this question too!)

I've been a fan of Dirk Bogarde ever since I first saw him in "So Long At The Fair" with Jean Simmons. I'd be thrilled to have a date with Dirk Bogarde. No hesitation, definitely Dirk Bogarde.

 

Would you rather have a conversation with Lionel, Ethel or John Barrymore?

Thank you for writing Marsha! I'm glad to learn that, did you watch the movies on TCM on Dirk Bogarde several weeks ago? (I believe it was a marathon of his films).

 

I would rather converse with Lionel Barrymore. I would love to know how filming It's a Wonderful Life was like!!

 

Would you rather dance with Cyd Charisse or Vera Ellen??!

I would rather write a play with Shakespeare. Perhaps I might be lucky enough to learn a little about his gift for writing plays that have been performed for hundreds of years.

I would rather hear Ella sing, because she dis some great ad libbing.

 

Would you like to sing a solo in front of a live audience and gets lots of fame, or would you like to sing in a choir with lots of people who only perform for rest homes?

I've always wanted to be a singer so I would prefer singing solo. I have great admiration for all the singers of songs the world over.

I would rather see a play! Going to the movies is fun, but a live performance is so much fun!

 

 

Would you rather cause mischief with Lucy and Ethel; or rag on them with Ricky and Fred?!

I would definitely rather cause mischief with Lucy and Ethel. Being part of their wonderful nutty glorious schemes would be a treat, the icing on a cake with the cherry on top. (BTW I would also rather see a play. As much as I love movies, I love being in a theater. Waiting for the curtain to go up still gives me goose bumps. It's a great feeling.)

 

 

Next:  Would you rather be on a movie set watching the director and film crew or sitting in a theater watching a play rehearsal?

If I had my druthers, I would rather have a glass of wine and share a microphone and sing in a piano bar with Bette Davis. What a wonderful night that would be.

Definitely Astaire - - even if I made a mistake, which I would, he would be more gracious about it than Gene Kelly.

I'd like to learn to tap dance, if Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Ann Miller and Eleanor Powell were teaching the class--- why not learn from the best.

Oooh, that is a touch choice.

 

I would pick Audrey because she worked with Gregory Peck in her film debut.
