Re: Which old-school Hollywood actress was most beautiful at her peak?

Dorothy Dandridge for me. After watching Halle's portrayal and learning about a lot of the barriers she broke down I really started to like her. I'm sure this poll will be between Marilyn *cough* whore *cough* Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, but Dorothy is definitely up there and deserves some recognition.

Surprised Marlene Dietrich isn't on this list, I thought she was exceptional in her prime.
Elizabeth Taylor and Lauren Bacall are my picks

Kelly, Bacall, Leigh & Taylor not in the poll, yet De Havilland is Hilarious and not in a good way ...



Vivien in her prime was a perfect doll and simply the best. After that I would say Bacall & Kelly. Hepburn is cute & likeable , however, not beautiful.

The Queen of Queens:

Divine.

And she wasn't just the ideal porcelain doll beauty either, she was striking, capriciously alluring and extremely refined.

Not wild about this list, went with Fontaine. Vivien Leigh is better than all of them.

I never saw what people liked about Audrey Hepburn.

I thought the poll was "peak".

Has anyone else watched The Postman Always Rings Twice?

I actually think Ginger Roger's looks are underrated, she had a beautiful face in her youth.

And her looks oozed charisma.



I always thought Katharine Hepburn's bone structure and almond shaped eyes were incredibly beautiful in her youth too.

Hey, you seem like a person familiar with the Academy Awards history. Any idea why Vivien was not nominated for Waterloo Bridge or That Hamilton Woman. I have been wondering and have no idea who to ask.
