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?

Sorry I didn't reply to these sooner... but between work and being sick I was either working or sleeping.

Gene Tierney - None
Mae West - Already on List
Irene Dunne - 1 title... Stolen Jools
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
