Picture of the Week or Month or whenever I feel like updating! ;-)

Her beauty is timeless - Louise Brooks. She was born in Kansas like me, and she even lived in Wichita and ran a dance school here for awhile, after her acting career had ended. She also wrote a book which I own. She was one of a kind. Oh, and she slept with Charlie Chaplin. ;-)

1. Fredric March
2. Robert Donat
3. Laurence Olivier
4. William Powell
5. Leslie Howard
6. Ronald Colman
7. Lew Ayres
8. Robert Montgomery
9. Franchot Tone
10. Montgomery Clift
11. James Dean
12. Chester Morris
13. Clark Gable
14. Anthony Newley
15. Robert Taylor
16. Spencer Tracy
17. George Raft
18. James Cagney

I got carried away! *pees* OH! HOW COULD I FORGET ALAN *SHINY NOSE* LADD!! *shrieks* The modern day acTORS I like are : Rufus Sewell, Toby Stephens, Jeremy Northam, Samuel West, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Sam Rockwell, Giovanni Ribisi.

I am like so into Fredric March all of a sudden. Ever since I saw Nothing Sacred, every performance I've seen him in he is brilliant, he just impressed me SO much. Especially since I hadn't heard of him til awhile back. He didn't win two Oscars for nothing. He's too good for words in my opinion. I highly recommend his films, Nothing Sacred, The Eagle and the Hawk, and The Best Years of Our Lives and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (which for some reason in the film they pronounce Jekyll as JEEKYL *pees* Is that right? I've always said it like it's spelled.) I don't even care if he looks awful in a film. haha. Usually I'm a bit superficial and I like to see my favorite acTORS look their best, but even when I saw him in Best Years of Our Lives with man boobies and burping I still loved him. ;-) HERE'S TO FRED, MAN BOOBIES AND ALL...

Something me and Fred have in common? He was a Virgo like yours truly! YAY! ;-)

sisters forever
