Really? Seems kind of rare to me among non-Cholas. And I can't think of a contemporary actress with those.

I didn't see Casablanca until I was in college, but I was immediately smitten. Bergman was certainly lovely. She also looked her best in Hitchcock's Notorious.

My other old-movie crush was Donna Reed in It's A Wonderful Life:

Table 7 is... formidable, there's no doubt about that, to be sure. Hell, you didn't even mention the woman my father claimed was the loveliest actress in his day, Elizabeth Taylor.

How about the beautiful Merle Oberon? She passed for white and hid her Eurasian origins.

Table 10 has the best, most cutting, conversation. None are left unskewered. Davis, Bankhead, and Hepburn spend the evening trying to one-up each other with devastating references to all the other ladies sexual peccadilloes and casting call tales.

So, lately I've been seeing a clickbait ad, something along the lines of "We bet you can't identify these movies just from a picture of the main character!"

Well, I'm no film buff, but even I recognize Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, from Breakfast at Tiffany's.

I love Audrey Hepburn too. I caught a little of Funny Face not too long ago - her Bohemian Dance scene just does something to me.

Hereís the story:

She played the wife of the middle-aged Marine sergeant with two grown children in The Best Years of Our Lives. Try as I might, I could not see her as a MILF. She was still incredibly hot in 1946, at least as much as Virginia Mayo in the same flick.

I adore many of the actresses named above, but this photo of Jean Peters really does it for me. She was gorgeous in Captain from Castile (1947).

https://iv1.lisimg.com/image/1218294...ean-peters.jpg

Those eyes, that nose, those full lips, that little pout. The shape of her face is perfect, and her eyebrows are just right. She's the kind of girl I always fall head over heels in love with.

Now hold on, hold on, don't jump to conclusions. But I'm saying Shirley Temple.

As a young woman.

Speaking of Virginia Mayo:

Hubba-hubba!

I think Joi Lansing falls under the 1960 limit. I remember being incredibly turned on seeing her as Mrs Superman opposite George Reeves:
