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

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

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.

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

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

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.
