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

By old-school I mean 30s-50s. From left to right:

Rita Hayworth, Olivia De Havilland, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Maureen O'Hara, Dorothy Dandridge, Cyd Charisse, Joan Fontaine



Other possibilities. From left to right:

Ava Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor, Vivien Leigh, Irene Dunne, Gene Tierney, Jean Harlow, Yvonne De Carlo, Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly



Jeez, so many . The final 2 spots or so in my top 9 (aside from 'other' of course) kept rotating for a while .

For me it's really tough between Miss Hayworth and Miss De Havilland, but I think I'll go with Miss De Havilland because her look is a bit less "sexy and I know it" than Rita's.

From this list i will mention Grace Kelly and Liz Taylor

However , it's just increadible how much more beutiful were actreses that time in comparioson with current stars

Dude, where is Debra Paget on your list?

Talk about BOMBSHELL




All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wonder are lost. The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring. Renewed shall be blade that was broken. The crownless again shall be king

Grace Kelly and Lana Turner.

Grace was a beautiful, elegant woman and Lana was just plain hot.

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

IMO Marilyn really was on another level of beauty. I know she's overrated but it's the truth.

And Hedy Lamarr was brilliant, too.

You can thank her for your cell phone and other wireless technology.

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

Some writer once suggested that Monroe would look good (better?) in a burlap potato sack. So Fox, where she was under contract, took it upon themselves to have a burlap sack turned into a form-fitting dress and have Monroe do a series of publicity stills in that dress.
