    Did someone say Martha Hyer?

    She had good chemistry with Clint Walker in Night of the Grizzly.

    Yes, I did! With very good reason:

    Martha Hyer should never be forgotten!

    Virginia Huston didn't make much of a splash during her screen career. She had a secondary role in a major classic, Out Of The Past, but most of her films are of minor interest.

    Virginia Huston 2.

    I didn't recognise her at first in this photo. Only after looking at her eyes did I realise that it is Virginia Huston.

    How about Ida Engvoll, star (for season one, at least) of the Swedish TV mystery series, Rebecka Martinsson (2017)?

    Loved seeing her in any man and murder on the orient express!

    I loved her as Catwoman too.

    I recognized her immediately. The eyes and the mouth are the giveaway, as they are in most photos.

    I recently notified an Ebay trader that a photo he was touting as Angie Dickinson was in fact Patrice Wymore. I cited the eyes and the mouth as my evidence. The Ebay trader quickly changed his listing.

    That's definitely Michelle Pfeiffer. That's how she looked early in her movie career. The photo on the left is a screengrab from Scarface (1983). She's had some work done in recent years, alas, so looks less recognizably herself now. (The same could be said for Al Pacino.)

    Last week I watched Two Girls On Broadway which reminded me that Joan Blondell was, amongst other things, well-named and worthy of inclusion in this thread.

    Joan Blondell.

    She was always a second stringer during her busy years at Warners and posed for some risqué pin-up pictures long after the Code had frightened off most other Hollywood actresses.

    Joan Blondell 7.

    I've always been pleased that late in her career she returned to movies with a good performance in The Cincinnati Kid.

    In my opinion Celeste Holm is one of the five most precise and versatile actresses ever to work in English language movies. She is rarely thought of as a glamor girl but when she was signed by 20th Century Fox, that was how they first saw her.

    Celeste Holm.

    She won an "Oscar" for playing a woman who - if Gentleman's Agreement is to make sense - was not physically attractive. It's a weakness of the film that Celeste Holm was not less attractive than Dorothy McGuire because for many viewers, the Gregory Peck character's choice of female companion is bizarre.

    I'm trying to avoid derailing this thread and no offense to Celeste Holm, who was attractive in her own right. I always thought Dorothy McGuire was really attractive with her beautiful, expressive eyes and high cheek bones. Both, were on full display for me before I ever watched "Gentlemen's Agreement". I watched "The Spiral Staircase" and "Old Yeller" when I was about 9-10 years old and didn't watched "Gentlemen's Agreement" until I was a young teenager of about 14-15 years old. I just had to say that in defense of Dorothy McGuire's looks. Anyhow, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

    And to prove that adage (as well as offering another contrasting opinion): I don't find either Ms. Holm or Ms. McGuire particularly attractive, personally - though they are both fine actresses.

    Perhaps we can all agree on Catherine Deneuve?

    It's not derailing the thread to stand up for Dorothy McGuire. I wasn't belittling her - I would never do that and I'm very much looking forward seeing her in the new Blu-ray disc of Three Coins In The Fountain.

    I was suggesting that because in Gentleman's Agreement Celeste Holm's character is far more of a soul mate to Gregory Peck's than was Dorothy McGuire's, in normal circumstances it would be expected Gregory Peck would switch to the woman with whom he had much in common. That he didn't despite her ardent appeal - "She doesn't rate you" - indicates a more fundamental male instinct was at work.

    I agree with you, Robert. Two of my favorite films, A Summer Place and The Dark At The Top Of The Stairs starred McGuire. Cinematographer Harry Stradling Sr. did a great job bringing out Dorothy's beauty.
