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 .

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

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.

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

historically proven it's a battle of Marilyn Monroe vs Audrey Hepburn , Monroe here will be voted only by straight men , so no chance to win here
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

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.

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.
