Hi,

 

All excellent choices! I'm not sure about Veronica Lake. I think most of her beauty was the hair falling over half of her face. I suppose she would qualify as a beauty.

 

I'll add

Francis Farmer

Ann Frances

I've always thought that Ann Rutherford was one of the most beautiful people ever, especially when she was a little more grown up in the mid-40's. She was just as beautiful in her teens as Andy Hardy's girlfriend and in Gone with the Wind.

Rhonda Fleming was definitely Drop Dead Gorgeous people! WOW! So to was Maria Montez! Haven't heard anyone mention those two, or Susan Hayward either yet?

 

Going back to the 30's, Constance Bennett was certainly a beauty! Going back to the 20's, Corrine Griffith and Delores Costello were both strikingly beautiful ladies as well!

Hedy Lamarr

Gene Tierney

Ava Gardner

 

and others . . .

 

Ingrid Bergman (a little less dramatic-looking than the others; she probably had her own category, to include the more fresh-faced beauties like Donna Reed, Paulette Goddard, Jeanne Crain)

Linda Darnell

Lena Horne

Lana Turner (Grace Kelly was prettier but she didn't show up til the 50s)

Brenda Marshall

 

I'm sure I forgot some, but these come to mind right away.

I am in complete agreement will all of the respondents choices. Couldn't have put it better myself!

 

I am surprised that no one mention ARLENE DAHL. I though she made a few movies in the late forties but perhaps it was the early fifties.
