Dear movielover11;

 

Very, very interesting, this little experiment!

Just finished reviewing the responses on your "For the Ladies . . " thread; some big difference, there to here!

Is that basic difference in the way we're "wired", do you think, or is it lurking somewhere in the "chemistry"?

Given the old "locker room" stereotypes, you'd almost assume this side over here would be bulging with steamy responses, as all us guys cue-up to "weigh in" with our strutting two-cents-worth . . and yet . . . . !

So, mulling all that over, I've decided that rather than run down through your very thorough checklist, which I'm certainly not too bashful to do, I'd rather compost my classic-actress romance-fantasy into the following little bit of ornamental shrubbery:

Stepping out, in flawless, low-key evening wear, from the Way-Back machine, I saunter in a swanky, uptown, post-modern nightclub, circa 1950, and in no time, I'm lounging at a white-linened table, kitty-corner from the bandstage, holding forth for tablemates Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Maureen O'Hara & Ina Balin, who are taking turns laughing softly at my charming anecdotes and batting their lustrous eyes at me, cause in my dreams I'm one charming scoundrel, when all of a sudden, in storms furious, rain-drenched Anna Magnani: she's furious, screams about having had enough of my fickleness, tired of waiting-up for calls from me that never come, fed-up with my broken promises and my endless catting around; after hurling a confiscated martini in my face (and drowning my Sobranie in the bargain), she kicks over a neighboring table, hurls a chair at the cowering maitre d', and stomps drippingly back out of the club, screeching invectives to the ancient gods of Sicily. As we all sit there in stunned silence, Eve Arden, moonlighting as the club's cigarette girl, saunters over, coolly pushes a Player shag-cut between my lips, Zippos me, and begins dispensing her "been-there-Honey" quips about the perils of standing-up Mediterraneans, and the economics of surviving broken dates.

As if on cue, Xavier Cugat raises his baton, and the band breaks into a spicey arrangement of "Brazil", as I flash my bravest, bonvivant grin at the four lovely ladies still seated around my table, all the while trying desparately to remember if I'd left my Browning .380 in Anna's nightstand, or in the glovebox of her DeSoto roadster . . .

It sounds a lot like marriage...

So I am going to go with "Myrna-Jean Hepburn."

 

A Myrna Loy, Jean Arthur, Audrey Hepburn combo.

Kondike, I love your post. I thought the guys would post a lot more responses to this thread. The difference you're speaking of could be a combination of both "chemistry" and the way guys are "wired". I loved reading your romance-fantasy. Thanks for your post!!!

I think there would be more responses from the men if there were fewer categories. I don't compartmentalize women along these lines. Do women really look for different types of men to fill the roles you've defined? Innearesting.

I agree Dan. That's why I orginally thought the thread would mostly be for women. I mean to ask a man who he "would like to have a one-night stand with" and then never see again - he'd probably mention all the classic actresses that ever lived.

 

I guess I should aske one general question for the men: Which actress would you not like to sleep with?? LOL

That depends, ml11; could handcuffs be considered as extenuating circumstances?

Klondike - you ar so funny!!!!!!

 

By the way, do you think some men would select Brando - I heard that he appealed to men and women back in the 50's. He had an adrodgenous face - very masculine and feminine at the same time.

My dear ml11:

 

A very intriguing question . . . and I would support that theory about as quickly as I'd assign Jayne Mansfield to an undercover mission in a Trappist monastery.

Some of us might be waiting for our demographic group to be called up. I was tempted to answer in the "For the Women..." thread, as the questions seemed to apply, even if the targeted gender didn't. In this thread, I'm among the targeted gender, but the questions don't apply. Celebrate diversity. ;)

Jack;

 

There I was, trying to illuminate gender stereotypes, and dodge the bullets at the same time . .

And seeing it quoted back, it sounds like : "Oink, oink, oink."

My apologies to everyone.

Yes, indeed: Celebrate diversity!
