    In a current thread about Footlight Parade there's a discussion about the talent of Ruby Keeler.

    Ruby Keeler 8.

    She herself was very modest about her talent and seems to have been modest in her ambitions too. She pretty well quit the film business after 1941.

    Myrna Hansen came into movies by winning a beauty contest.

    Myrna Hansen 1a.

    Her career did not amount to much more than a handful of small, supporting roles. I remember her in Raintree County as the young woman who elopes with the very naughty school teacher played by Nigel Patrick and as the showgirl who kills herself at the beginning of Party Girl.

    Could you please provide the name of the actress with her picture. Other than Natalie Portman, I haven't a clue who these women are.

    I watched the limp-wristed thriller Model For Murder today and once again was greatly impressed by Hazel Court:

    Hazel Court 1a.

    She became famous late in her movie career by appearing in horror films. I prefer her in earlier films like Forbidden . . .

    Forbidden 12.

    . . . which I'm going to watch in the next few days.

    Many people think of Rita Hayworth as a redhead but she did not start out that way. Margarita Cansino's ancestors were Spanish and her early publicity photos at Fox emphasized her Latin roots:

    Rita at 16.

    She made steady progress in B features at Columbia leading to her big break-through in Only Angels Have Wings, and her publicity pictures became ever more glamorous . . . .

    Rita.

    . . . culminating in her being labelled The Love Goddess.

    What a picture, Robin! (Image #2, that is!)

    "Love Goddess," indeed.

    An interesting observation and one I'd never noticed before. I have several photos of Rita when she was in her teens and starting out. I'll post some more in the next few days to see what her nose looks like in them.

    I first came across Giovanna Ralli through photographs in film magazines. Then I saw her in an Italian Western and she didn't make much impression on me. Later I saw her opposite Michael Caine in Deadfall and I was impressed!

    Giovanna Ralli 2.

    Sadly, in films like Cannon For Cordoba and What Did You Do In The War, Daddy? she's never again particularly impressed me, although her face is marvellous.

    Can't remember if I've mentioned one of my favorite brunettes in this thread or not...so here she is again: Jennifer LOVE Hewitt (always have to emphasize her middle name).

    Last night I watched Classe Tous Risques, a very good French crime movie with Sandra Milo playing the female lead.

    Sandra Milo 10.

    She's very good in this, playing a rather laid-back, cool thinking woman. Her face is really attractive.

    sandra milo 2.

    A short time after making this film, Sandra Milo went blonde and began playing very obvious women. Most photos of her on the Internet are from this later period when I think she was less interesting. I much prefer her as a brunette.
