This is my first post... I have only recently "discovered" TCM, and am already addicted...

 

I have to say I was disappointed that not many of you mentioned Joan Fontaine... her sister seems to be far more popular... I do admire both, but there is something about Joan... I will never forget how swept I was by "Rebecca", "Letter of an unknown woman" and "Frenchman's creek"...

 

Here are my very favorites:

 

Joan Fontaine Ingrid Bergman Katharine Hepburn Cate Blanchett

Gregory Peck Cary Grant Ralph Fiennes Fredric March

Quite impressive lists, Randy! As to actors, I am glad to see someone mention Farley Granger. I so enjoy him in movies like Strangers on a Train.

 

Hmmm ... your "actresses" list seems heavy on brunettes! ;) All excellent choices. I agree that Hedy Lamarr's beauty was and is unsurpassed.
