Who would you rather meet?

Recommended Posts

For the previous one, it would be a tie, because I like both Irene Dunne and Norma Shearer.  I'm not a big fan of either George Raft or George Brent, but I would have to say I'd rather meet George Raft, just to ask him why he's turned down so many movie roles.

Barbara Stanwyck was one of my first favorite movie stars and certainly will always be one of the greatest actresses of Classic Hollywood of that age and of any age. My two favorite Barbara Stanwyck movies are:

"Meet John Doe" and

"Double Indemnity".

What versatility!

I guess Billy Wilder.  I'd be curious to know more about the "lost" ending of "Double Indemnity".

Gracie Allen!

But if we have to stick with your choices then it'll have to be her husband's best friend, Jack Benny.

Just to get this game going -

I can't quite decide.  I never really thought so much of meeting any bandleaders, except for Harry James (I'd get to meet his wife, Betty Grable).

No contest here, Sam The Tap Dancing Man!

Although I always thought Joey Bishop was rather cute.

Next:

Who would you rather meet and sing with:

 Judy or Barbra?

Most definitely Judy. I've always thought Barbara Streisand was a little uppity. Plus, I like Judy's movies better and she seemed friendlier.

Next:

Stallone or Schwarzenegger?

I'd go with Sly, because I'd like to ask him about his real training methods he went through for the "Rocky" movies.

I always admired Lillian as an actress, but my mother constantly told me about how great Mary Pickford was and that she was the original Pollyanna that everyone copied.

So I guess I would have liked to have gone to Pickfair and talked with her about how she created the American movie industry and United Artists.

Next: And the other two movie star founders of Hollywood--

Mary's husband Douglas Fairbanks and the Little Tramp Charlie Chaplin--

Who would you pick?

I would pick Charlie Chaplin since he was indeed one of the true icons of Hollywood's real "golden-age", plus I would like to meet his wife Paulette Goddard (only when he was married to her).  I would also like to ask him about where he came up with all of his clever ideas and tricks for his films.

I've been in love with Richard Widmark since I can remember, so I don't have any choice in the matter.

But wasn't Bob Mitchum something! 

Next:

It didn't matter if it was screwball or drama, these two very handsome men  could handle it. And they did just that co-starring with Claudette Colbert, Greta Garbo, Irene Dunne, Ginger Rogers, Paulette Goddard, and whomever else was lucky enough to play opposite them.

Who would you pick:

Ray Milland or Melvyn Douglas?

I'd say Melvyn Douglas.  In my opinion, I think he's much funnier than Ray Milland, plus I've always liked his strait-man mannerisms mixed with comedic timing.

Judy Judy Judy--

And MGM thought so too. Cuz at one time they were both under contract but Metro had to let Deanna go. I've heard that she did quite well at Universal anyway. LOL

Next:

Two ladies who could handle  anything and anyone, one was your favorite:

Irene Dunne or Rosalind Russell?

It's a tie!  I like them both very much.  Irene is so sweet, gentle, and motherly and has such a lovely-sounding singing voice.  Rosalind is more tough, yet can be very feminine and butch at the same time.  Her thick, raspy voice is very attractive, as well.  She too is very versatile.
