  1. *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.

  2. Just saw this item in article (link below)...scroll down to find paragraph:

    "Seeing as Hollywood legend *Debbie Reynolds* stars in Heigl's coming film One for the Money, we could be in luck in the dirt-dishing department. (Reynolds, if anyone remembers, was friends with *Natalie Wood* and *Robert Wagner*, who is now being questioned, again, for Wood's suspicious death aboard his boat 21 years ago. Just sayin'.)"

     

    Anyone know why Debbie Reynolds would be questioned?

    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.

    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):
