Who would you rather meet?

Recommended Posts

John McGiver.  I always liked his voice.  He was in classic TV shows including The Twilight Zone and the Dick Van Dyke Show.  He was had a memorable death in The Manchurian Candidate, getting shot while holding a milk carton and the milk pours out before he collapses.

Next:  Laurence Harvey or Dirk Bogarde

Richard Deacon.  He was on so many classic TV shows.  He was especially memorable as Mel Cooley.  

Next:  Florence Henderson or Shirley Jones?

Shirley Jones, I would like to hear stories about husband Jack Cassidy

Next- Robert Young or Ozzie Nelson?

I've heard some really bad things about Ozzie-- end of story.

 Robert Young is an actor who never really got an opportunity to develop his full potential.

I have a lot of empathy for him and I'd like to hear his story.

Next:

Two best friends-- Sidney Poitier or Richard Widmark ( I'm going to give this one away because I wouldn't know which one to select.)

Sidney Poitier.  I never loved or hated Richard Widmark he was just … fine, for me. 

Next:  Bing Crosby or Bob Hope?

That's a hard one. I really should pass, because I can't stand either one of them.

But I'm weak for Leo McCarey, so I'll just dial "O" for O'Malley--Der Bingel.

Two great guys who were raucous friends and I love both of them!

Broderick Crawford or Lon Chaney Jr

Never cared much for Jean Arthur. Frank Capra could get a lot out of her, but it must have been hard.

Irene Dunne starred in three of my favorite movies. And she could sing too!

Next:

Carole Lombard or Claudette Colbert?

Claudette Colbert - I always liked her, plus she just seems SO nice and sweet.

Carole Lombard is okay (she was really good in "MADE FOR EACH OTHER"), but I was just always fond of Claudette.

Next: Ann Miller

These two "sassy" women look like they could be sisters.

I've met Ann Miller, so I would have to say Gloria DeHaven.

Next:

James Cagney - I like how he can both play a tough guy, yet also be such a good dancer.

 

NEXT -

 

Joe E. Brown

Boris Karloff.  I prefer him to Lugosi. Better actor and better movies, I think.

Next: Shirley Temple or Margaret O'Brien?

 Shirley studied tap dancing with Bojangles. What a lucky girl. She was wonderful in the movies and she was great her whole life through!

Next: Marlo Thomas or Elizabeth Montgomery?

Elizabeth Montgomery.  Nothing against Marlo but I think of her more on those St Jude commercials than "That Girl"

Next:  Elvis or Johnny Cash?

Al Pacino (I think that might be Princess's choice, too. )

Next:  Gregory Peck or Robert Mitchum?
