I fully expect that hardly anyone here will know the name “Debra Paget”.
But, I once saw this movie called, “Princess of the Nile” and she had the leading role. It wasn’t much of a movie but there was something really special about her performance. Before that movie was over, I decided that she might well be the most beautiful actress I had ever seen. And talented? In Spades! What a dancer! What an athlete! She was just too much of too much.
I should also say that she appeared in Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments”. She played Lilia. You may not remember her performance. It wasn’t terribly notable. But once again, she was just incredibly beautiful and I surely won’t ever forget that performance.
However, IMO, her performance in “Princess of the Nile” was just the standout performance I have ever seen.
For those of you who may someday get the chance, I cannot recommend you seeing that performance strongly enough. What a knockout!
In the vernacular of her time, “What a dish!”
It may not be terribly appropriate to start a thread here that is devoted to one actress when most of you have probably never heard of her before. But I just watched The Ten Commandments again yesterday and I just find myself unable to stop myself from starting this thread.
I just love this lady. I have loved her ever since I first saw her dancing and I just hope that some of you will feel the same way.
