Paulll

Who would you rather meet?

Recommended Posts

Robert Mitchum is a great actor and movie star but--

Gregory Peck will always be Atticus Finch for me. I collected his US postal stamp and it's a portrait of him as Atticus in "To Kill a Mockingbird".

Next:

William Demarest or William Frawley?

I would probably say William Frawley, because he's pretty funny on "I Love Lucy".

I really liked Glenda in "Susan Slept Here" because she played her scenes very well with Dick Powell.

But Joan Blondell did the real thing--  Dick Powell was her husband and they had a daughter together.

So, Joan could tell me about all those great Warner Brothers musicals and about Dick Powell too.

June Allyson or Van Johnson?

 Paulette Goddard's main talent was meeting Charlie Chaplin.....

I really loved Maureen O'Sullivan in "The Thin Man", the first movie of that great Classic series. And a lot of decades later I loved her in  Woody Allen's "Hannah and Her Sisters".

Next:

Dabbs Greer or Dub Taylor?

I'm not too familiar with those two names, but if I were to pick, I'd say Dub Taylor, because I thought he was funny as the xylophonist in" YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU".

Rosalind Russell...

...or Claudette Colbert?

By the way, Princess of Tap, I strongly agree with what you said about Maureen O’Sullivan, as an actress.  I also like her in "A DAY AT THE RACES" with the Marx Brothers, and especially as Jane in the Tarzan pictures with Johnny Weismuller.  I also really like Paulette Goddard in any movie she's in.  That's why I suggested those two to choose between.  They both seem so friendly and sweet.

Claudette Colbert is an icon of the 1930s because she was the first actress of the screwball comedy. But she was also noted for dramatic roles as well.

Next:

Percy Helton or Sterling Holloway

Two memorable voices but I'd take Sterling Holloway.

Two terrific TV stars, and both of them started out headlining on Broadway!

But I think I'll have to pick the song and dance man Dick Van Dyke.

Art Carney - He's so funny as the lovable neighbor Ed Norton on "The Honeymooners".

Tony Curtis...

I like them both. Tony has a nice voice, he's funny, and any man who would dress up in drag for a movie (same with Lemmon) is a real man in my book. Jack is very funny but he was so good in The Days of Wine and Roses (The scene when he's in the strait jacket, screaming--he was screaming and freaking out for real, they had to stop the scene to calm him down). During the filming of The Defiant Ones, it original is was starring Sidney Poitier and Robert Mitchum. When they wanted to give Sidney equal top billing with Mitchum, the latter quit. Enter Tony Curtis, who had no problem sharing top billing with the young Sidney Poitier. Tony is really down to earth and self-effacing. One more thing, Tony NEVER said that kissing Marilyn Monroe was like kissing Hitler. Tony is funnier, at least to me. So I prefer Tony Curtis.

Ingrid Bergman....or Ann-Margaret...?

William Holden. I would love to ask him about all the people he's worked with over the years and some of his movies.

Next:

John Wayne or Charlton Heston?

Oohhh... That's a VERY tough one. Hmm.. Realistically I would like to meet them both, but I'll give the edge to Charlton Heston. He was very dreamy. 

 

Next: Dana Andrews or Cornel Wilde?

Probably Dana Andrews, since I've seen more of his movies than those with Cornel Wilde.

I like Jeanne Crain and she is in several films I rank very highly, but Natalie Wood wins this. I so wish I could have met her. 💜

 

Next: Maureen O'Hara or Maureen O'Sullivan?

I find Maureen O'Hara to be very pretty, but I just always had a great fondness for Maureen O'Sullivan, especially in the Tarzan films.  Just like Paulette Goddard (whose picture you can see above with O'Sullivan's), I think they're both very sweet and saucy-sounding actresses.

Dorothy Lamour...

Hmm.. I don't know much about either, but I have seen The Conspirators (1944) before. Plus I would love learning about Austrian History and Culture, so I'll say Hedy Lamarr. 

 

 

Would you rather meet, and sing and dance with Gordon MacRae or Howard Keel?

I've seen more movies with Howard Keel, so I would pick him.  I especially like the movies he did with Kathryn Grayson.

Certainly no contest here--

Coop-- He was just about as good as they come-- on and off screen.

And what a beautiful family he had.

Next:

Two more Great Western stars that I really like. But who would you pick?

Randolph Scott or Joel McCrea?
