To me, it looks almost the same colour as the hat Sheriff Layne wore in *3 Bad Men* ;)

Hey look at that...I never looked (or sounded) so good!! I decided earlier (just to keep this thread on track) that if I could not be Doris I would want to be Judy Garland just so I could dress/sing/and play the harp like she did tonight in The Good Old Summertime....not that great a version of that story...but I liked her singing in it...

 

But now after seeing this pic of D. D. oh...decisions, decisions!!! :-)

There is nothing wrong with choosing more than one, is there? You would be very lovely in either case. ;)

For anybody who looks so great to begin with, confidence shouldn't be an issue. ;)

My little brother (just turned nine) saw me looking at this thread and he said, "I would want to be Bob Hope in either *"The Ghost Breakers"* or *"Caught In The Draft"* ."

 

Hahaha! I don't know where this all comes from...

 

He's the one who also said he wants to dress up like Cary Grant for famous people day at his school...he's been trying to figure out how to get a dimple in his chin...LOL!

Oh my goodness, ILRM, that is the cutest, sweetest

thing!! I hope he always wants to dress like Cary. He

couldn't ask for a better role model. :)

I tried only to choose characters whose scripts had them living happily ever after. :)

 

Westerns:

 

*Penelope* in Angel and the Badman - Because she has a wonderful

family with values and beliefs similar to my own and she inspires John Wayne to

tame his wild and woolly ways.

 

*Elizabeth Mahler* in The Hanging Tree - She gets Gary Cooper! That is

reason enough.

 

*Katherine McLintock* in McLintock! - Rich, spirited, beloved---and feared.

I could get to like that. :)

 

Film Noir:

 

*Laura* Hunt (Gene Tierney) - Getting shot at would be no fun but since my life's

script would guarantee my survival and I'd have a fabulous job, apartment and

husband in Dana Andrews, it would be worth it!

 

Comedy:

 

*Irene Bullock* in My Man Godfrey - Because she hasn't a care in the world.

 

*Nora Charles* in The Thin Man - Ditto.

 

Adventure:

 

*Judy* in The General Died at Dawn - Life would be one grand adventure

with the perfect partner, Gary Cooper!

 

*Jane Hoyt* in Soldier of Fortune - Same as above, only with Clark Gable. :)

Thanks, I will tell him...and he'll probably say, "Cute?...ewww!" :-) .

We are just talking about acting a part in a movie. Right?

 

So I want to be Baby Jane Hudson in WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE.

 

I would like to be crazy, evil, malicious, haggardly, etc just for a short while.

Maybe you better substitute "Super Cool!" instead. :D

Hmmm...I think I'd like to be Mary Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life. Or Penny Carrol from Swing Time.

 

But then there's also Queenie Mahoney in The Broadway Melody and Lisa Fremont in Rear Window. And Nora Charles in The Thin Man movies. Ahhh I can't choose!
