    Actresses of Yesteryear
    This month I decided to do something a little different with my marathon... while working on seeing some more of the classic films.
    I am taking a list of well known actresses from the past and each day that I can watch at least 1 movie I will draw a name by random and watch at least 1 film from my collection with her in it. Here is my current list of actresses for the marathon. If I am missing a well known actress from the past (lets say from the '30s to the '50s) let me know who and I will see if I have anything in my collection with her to add it to my marathon.​

    List of Actresses:
    Audrey Hepburn
    Ava Gardner
    Barbara Stanwick
    Bette Davis
    Betty Grable
    Carole Lombard
    Claudette Colbert
    Elizabeth Taylor
    Ginger Rogers
    Grace Kelly
    Greta Garbo
    Ingred Bergman
    Joan Crawford
    Joan Fontaine
    Judy Garland
    Katherine Hepburn
    Lauren Bacall
    Mae West
    Marilyn Monroe
    Marlene Dietrich
    Maureen O'Hara
    Olivia de Havilland
    Shirley Temple
    Susan Hayward
    Vivien Leigh

    So am I missing anyone important?

    Also, anyone now a program (preferably free) that I can put a list of names in that will randomly pick a name for you?

    You don't have Laura!!! Buy it post haste; you won't be sorry, and Tierney is excellent in it (as are Clifton Webb, Vincent Price, Judith Anderson, and Dana Andrews).

    For Irene Dunne, I would suggest
    The Awful Truth
    My Favorite Wife
    I Remember Mama
    Love Affair
    Showboat
    (‘36).

    Unfortunately none on Blu-Ray
