For today's post, I thought it would be fun to give you my top five favorite actresses, actors, and movies. I thought this would be a good opportunity to give my new readers a chance to get to know me better. I hope you enjoy the lists.
Top Five Favorite Actresses:
Doris Day: Who doesn't love Doris Day? To me she epitomizes the late '50s and early '60s. She was so cute and talented. Doris Day began her career as a dancer, but due to a car accident she could not achieve that dream. She became a singer and later an actress. She has a beautiful singing voice and is an advocate for animals.
Judy Garland: Millions of people have grown up watching Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz. Most people only know her for this movie and for her tragic death. Judy Garland was a great actress and a wonderful singer. If you have never checked out her other movies, you really should.
Grace Kelly: Grace Kelly only made a handful of movies during her career. The fact that she is so recognizable today speaks for her talent.
Katharine Hepburn: She is one of the most celebrated actresses of our time. She was the only actor to every win four Academy Awards.
Marilyn Monroe: In my opinion, people never took Marilyn Monroe as seriously as they should have. It takes a lot of talent to act dumb, and she did it so well.
Top Five Favorite Actors:
Cary Grant: Cary Grant was the pure definition of suave and debonair. The fact that he could act was an extra bonus.
James Stewart: He was a talented actor and deemed the average man by director Alfred Hitchcock.
Bing Crosby: The "crooner" took a leap into acting and later went on to win an Academy Award for his role in Going My Way.
Gene Kelly: He was one of the best dancers of all time, who went on to direct the movie Hello Dolly.
Rock Hudson: He was a truck driver turned actor who was most famous for his movies with Doris Day.
Pillow Talk: One of the best movies Doris Day and Rock Hudson made together. Doris Day was nominated for an Academy Award for this movie.
All About Eve: Until Titanic, All About Eve held the record for the most Academy Award nominations. Bette Davis and Anne Baxter star in this movie about what goes on behind the scenes of an aging actress.
Guess Who's Coming To Dinner: This was Spencer Tracy's last movie. It was a ground breaking movie about an interracial couple who are going to be married.
How To Marry A Millionaire: This movie is about three young women determined to marry a millionaire. It stars Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, and Betty Grable.
That Touch of Mink: This is another great movie with Doris Day. This time she stars with Cary Grant. I love the scenes at the auto-mat with Audrey Meadows
I hope you all enjoyed my top five favorites. I hope you were not too board.
