Who would you marry?


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

I apparently already answered this thread awhile back with my boy Errol. He’s still one of my choices but I’m throwing these other names in the ring:

James Darren

John Derek

Ricky Nelson

Jim Morrison

Luke Perry 

 

out of all my choices, James Darren is still kicking it. He’s only 48 years older than me.  Lol.

Audrey Hepburn! So beautiful and kind. 

Deborah Kerr also seemed like excellent wife material. 

Interesting comment about Kerr;   Like Grace Kelly,  a lot of folks get a cold-vibe from these actresses.

Of course to some that might just be excellent wife material!

Thelma Ritter.

(...oh wait...I already offered up this joke earlier in this old thread, didn't I) ;)

In that case and in all seriousness, Myrna Loy.

I mean, she did often play the perfect wife to guys like William Powell, Clark Gable, Fredric March and Cary Grant in a lot of movies back in the day, didn't she? And if she was good enough for THEM, she's good enough for ME!

(...and besides, I've always loved that little turned-up nose of hers and that little lilt in her voice)

Myrna Loy is a great choice.     Since I like variety,  I'm going to go with any of Mickey Rooney's Exs.

Yea,  Mickey had 8 wife's (divorced 6, and one was killed) so there is a lot to choose from.

But yea,  #1 and#3 are my favorites!

Now, how'd I know that! ;)

(...btw, as I'm sure you'd know, they'd be my favorites too)

I thought both her characters and when I've seen clips of her in real life she seemed very gentle and kind, much like Audrey.

My first choice would be Toshiro Mifune-- A diverse actor and a humble human being.

But if he wasn't available, I think I would be just as satisfied with any of the next 6:

 

1) Leslie Howard

2) Al Pacino

3) William Holden

4) Sidney Poitier

5) Richard Widmark

6) Oskar Werner

 

They're completely legendary, great actors and after all, who wants the same salad dressing every night?

Oh how I love threads with these types of lists! Here are my picks : ❤ 

• Harold Lloyd : One of the most influential actors of the silent film era and a man who stayed married to his beloved bride Mildred Davis til her death in 1969.

• Douglas Fairbanks : As a fan of Mary Pickford and classic film fan I'm aware of who Douglas Fairbanks is though I can't say I've seen any of his films! 

• John Garfield : Before Montgomery Clift and Marlon Brando, James Dean and Paul Newman there was only one John Garfield. Enough said.

• Paul Newman :  What a magnificent actor and beautiful man. I always watch TCM but when a Paul Newman film is on that's not Cool Hand Luke or Cat On A Hot Tin Roof I watch. Nothing wrong with these films I'm just not into those pictures. 

• James Stewart : There was no other actor in the 30's and 40's who portrayed the all-American man quite like Jimmy Stewart. I love his films : You Can't Take It With You, Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, It's A Wonderful Life, The Shop Around The Corner.

Reminds me of a similar question years ago on another movie forum: What movie star's hair would you like to have? My reply: Kim Novak's--on her head and my shoulder. She was the hottest thing on  two feet back when I was 17. But marry a movie star? Too much ego to tiptoe around. However, one of my ex-wives looked a lot like Annette Funicello and unfortunately was as out of touch with reality. Another love looked a lot like Marsha Mason right down to her smile. The love of my life, my wife for the last 25 years, is smart, sassy, and independent, a real woman not some flickering image on a screen. She's still as lovely and as interesting and with the same great smile as the night she first danced by me at a Houston dance hall (system wouldn't let me say ****-tonk, as in the title of the Clark Gable-Lana Turner movie). Followed her off the dance floor to ask for the next dance, and we've been whirling to the music ever since.

system sanitized my original use of ****-tonk apparently mistaken it as a slur of some sort
