Fabulous list and very much like mine! I have my guys all ready to post...putting them up soon. This is fun! :)

Excellent choices. Am I correct in saying that each of your choices has won an Oscar? (Not sure about a couple).

So glad to see Joan Fontaine here, she was irresistible in Rebecca. And Vivien Leigh, such an expressive face and eyes. As for Audrey, she was that rare actress that inspired such affection as well as admiration.

You know Rebecca...no need for me to list...I love your actress list and your actors....fabulous pictures of them all :)

Busy day today...just getting around to everying...it's so late :)

Rebecca said...

Lavinia, you are absolutely correct. Each one of them has/had an Oscar( some more than one)...

Joan Fontaine's performance in Rebecca was amazing. She is one of the most underated/overlooked actresses in history.

Vivien Leigh was exquisite. Her beauty so timeless...The range of her ability really came through in "A Streetcar named Desire"...What a performance!

Rebecca said...

Thank you Dee dee...This is turning into a busy week around here, too.

Rebecca, I've given you an award...pop over to the birdbath to see why the 'feather's are flying'!

Don't you just love Cate Blanchett!

Rebecca said...


Yes, very much...She is truly exceptional.

Joan Fontaine is certainly underrated. I think all these actresses are outstanding in their own unique way. I enjoyed the pictures.
