    In the opening sequence of In Harm's Way Barbara Bouchet plays the errant and aberrant wife of a naval officer and is gloriously vivacious.

    20.

    She seemed in the mid '60s certain to become a major film star and was constantly appearing on magazine covers.

    4.

    She quickly tired of playing sexpots and bimbos in Hollywood movies and went to Italy, carving out a successful career in giallo films and sex comedies.

    Lori Nelson, born in 1933 and still with us, was a very attractive blonde who in the 1950s had a seven year contract with Universal-International.

    Lori Nelson 2.

    She was given small roles in several routine films, some of which like Destry and Walking My Baby Back Home have never been given proper releases on disc. Paradoxically, several of her others films are available on Blu-ray disc.

    For me, Lori Nelson is yet another in that very long line of actresses who were never given the right opportunities to show what they could do.

    Hey...I like the Audie Murphy version of Destry! Murphy's no Jimmy Stewart, but I've always found him an engaging screen presence in his various westerns. And Lori Nelson's just the right height to match her co-star (sans heels, anyway). ;)

    Here's Lori with another blonde 50s goddess, Mamie Van Doren:

    I'll never forget seeing Hayley Mills in Tiger Bay. I think that was her first movie.

    In the past month or so I've watched two films starring Jennifer Lawrence. I don't like her much and she gave basically the same expressionless, dead pan performance in two very different roles.

    Jennifer Lawrence 2.

    She does have enormous power on screen that really holds the attention. It's not charisma or glamour. It's a kind of hypnotic stillness and it would make her a gripping femme fatale if films like Double Indemnity and Out Of The Past were still being made.

    Jennifer Lawrence.

    Two things about Jennifer Lawrence are undeniable: she's a star of today and she's a blonde. She deserves a place in this thread.

    Today I watched It Shouldn't Happen To A Dog, a fast moving and fairly amusing comedy thriller starring Carole Landis, and there as second female lead was an unusually forceful Jean Wallace.

    Jean Wallace.

    Jean Wallace was often a non-event on screen and this passive quality worked to great advantage in The Big Combo where she played a limpid object of desire for two sworn enemies. Her marriage to Cornel Wilde helped her secure leading roles in most of his films, some of which, like Maracaibo, have never been released on disc.

    Jean Wallace 3.

    After the marriage ended her career petered out quickly and she made no further films after No Blade Of Grass.

    Jean Wallace 2.
