Now, about Hayley Atwell: I must admit I'd never heard of her until seeing her photo in this thread, so I searched on-line for her and found this very alluring picture . . . .

. . . But I also found a truly impressive photo credited as Hayley Atwell but which to me doesn't look like her . . . .

Query Hayley Atwell.jpg


Does anyone know for sure who this is? Whatever her name, Hayley Atwell or otherwise, she certainly deserves a place in a thread about brunettes!

Wow, Jeffrey, what a mam.. memory! Thanks Robin. I checked, Krista Allen, sadly, only has one other picture in this thread. Her pic above is from the "Liar, Liar" elevator scene.




Robin, your Hayley pic was doctored. That dress was thin, but not that thin.

This thread has now got me interested in her but, as I've never seen any of her films etc, which do you recommend?
She first caught my eye in a little 2007 film named "How About You". As soon as I saw that film, I wanted to see this very attractive actress in other films. I liked her in "The Sweeney" too with Ray Winestone. Of course, you should watch her in Captain America: The First Avenger.

Many thanks. I have now placed my order for How About You - a title I normally associate with Frank Sinatra's classic album Songs For Swingin' Lovers. (In fact, I'm going to listen to the whole album tomorrow)

Ida Lupino's career has been varied and long-lasting. She started very young and was blonde in some of her first films. When she came to Hollywood she reverted to brunette and was given the conventional glamor treatment:

Despite publicity photos like this, she was often played unglamorous parts in films like High Sierra.

Thanks for the recommendation. I watched this yesterday and enjoyed it although travelling hopefully was better than arriving. I thought the director and cast were a lot better than the script. Hayley Atwell is a good actress and she has screen presence too.

Restless is a tv movie so might have benefitted from more money spent on the script.

If you liked Rufus Sewell, I would very highly recommend his television detective series (3 feature length films) Zen. This also features Caterina Murino (Casino Royale). Outstanding show set in Rome.

Having watched a documentary about Hedy Lamarr last night, it's dawned on me that she deserves a place in a thread about brunettes:

Hedy Lamarr 76.jpg


She was regarded by some as the most beautiful actress in Hollywood in her day. Although that's very much a matter of taste, she was certainly impressive as this picture shows.
