Who's got your heart? (A male and female question)

Recommended Posts

Past Foreign & Hollywood: Jeanne Moreau, Monica Vitti, Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Veronica Lake, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe.

Present Hollywood: Jennifer Connelly, Kate Beckinsale, Kiera Knightley, Amanda Peet, Scarlet Johansson.

Future Foreign & Hollywood: Eva Green (Bertolucci's "The Dreamers"), Mischa Barton.

Clause: the names listed above are based primarily on beauty rather than talent regardless of the fact that some of the individuals named have perfected their craft (as one can see with the progression (or degression?!) from past to future!). therefore i ask that you not compare them as such, but rather to free your primal instincts and seek a more mundane opinion of them, in this instance, as i have in mysoginistic objectivity. thank you.

For me its a tie between William Holden and Joel McCrea.

 

If I were a guy I'd have to say Constance Bennett, hands down. She was classy, sophisticated, not to mention enormously talented.

Unfortunately, all the men are gone to that great silver screen in the sky, except Gregory Peck, I think he might still be alive. I have to say that of the major "leading men" around nowadays, orlando bloom is one of the better ones. Some of these young guys that get gushed over, the only thing they have going for them is their looks, and some don't even have that. Of course, I speak from the ripe old age of 42 (at least the most of the girls I work with think it's old).

Robert Montgomery?he was SO handsome. He was kind of underrated as an actor. I loved hiim in "Man in Possession" and "Hide-Out," two very cute and funny films.

 

Charles Boyer, especially in "Mayerling," "Love Affair," and "Liliom" where he performed brilliantly and looked great too.

I can't believe you picked my two favs. I love Hide-Out too and now I have to see Man in Possession from your recommendation. I would suggest History is Made at Night if you're a Boyer fan. He's so handsome and charming in it.

The couple that stole my heart (aside from The Charles) is The Potters in Holiday (1938). Edward Everett Horton and Jean Dixon. I love watching either of them in anything. I think Peter Lorre would've been fun to know. Gary Cooper in High Noon was the most handsome. I love watching the dancers, too. Debbie Reynolds was awesome! Yay, I'm so happy I can watch them on TCM!

It is surprising we have the same two favorites, although maybe not since both were handsome, debonair and intelligent.

 

I did get to see Boyer in "History is Made at Night" and yep he sure was dashing and handsome in it. He also had great chemistry with Jean Arthur?too bad it was their only film together.

 

You probably already know "The Man in Possession" will air in January. It has a clever and witty script, too (no wonder since some of it was written by P. G. Wodehouse) and a terrific cast. I'm certainly looking forward to January's RM line up!

I just got to see The Man in Possession, and found it wonderfully charming and very sexy. Robert Montgomery was adorable in it, and I laughed aloud several times.

 

Speaking of Montgomery, does anyone know if he is actually visible in The Single Standard, his very first movie? I know he is listed as an extra, but I haven't yet spotted him.

Oh gosh...Fred Astaire for his dancing and heart-felt singing, Allan Jones for his singing, Bill Shirley for HIS singing (voice of Freddy in My Fair Lady and Prince Philip in Sleeping Beauty).

Gregory Peck for his natural-ness (if that's a word) Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant.

oh yeah..and Donald O'Connor
