Jezebel (1938) and Gone With the Wind (1939) Bette Davis' Julie and Vivien Leigh's Scarlett are both head strong and brave no doubt. But both act very childish and petty at times during their films. *Side note, love both of these films, the characters and actresses. But I have to call a spade, a spade. 

Miracle on 34th St (1947) Natalie Wood's Susan Walker, who is a child acts like a cynical adult. 

Sex and the Single Girl (1964) Tony Curtis acts as Henry Fonda, an older married man to receive therapy for an article he is writing.

I was thinking of ALL ABOUT EVE -- Margo turning 40 but still playing 24 year old characters

This happens with Ginger Rogers' character in FOREVER FEMALE (1953). She must be convinced to step aside and let a young new hopeful do the role in her place.

That reminds me of the I LOVE LUCY called "The Passports"  where Lucy needs her old babysitter to witness Lucy's age because she lost her birth certificate , but the old babysitter won't admit she's over 29.

The guy to the left of Jerry Lewis reminds me of Alex Moffat of SNL fame. Anyone know who he is?
