We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Nice post. I thought it was much better than the original. The first one was much too speeded up and the names weren't on-screen. I'd have a small quibble with the "most beautiful" part, though. Eye of the beholder and all that. "Lovely" was much better.
I found I liked the older women better (maybe that's because I'm a fossil) but there was something classic about their beauty. I certainly thought that several of them, young and old, were not portrayed in their best light.
I thought it was cleverly done, though agree the morphing had a degree of creepy. A tad longer focus on the still would have been useful. I suspect we all had our favorites going in so wouldn't much be persuaded by otherwise. If forced to choose, I'd be with wirraway... Hedy Lamar. Not only beautiful, or lovely as the case may be, but an extraordinarily brilliant mind. What a challenge to keep up with.
I vote for Hedy Lamarr, too! And such a sexy voice she had.
I always was in love with Ann Margret.
But after seeing Farrah there, how could you ever leave out Jacqueline Smith, she would be above many in this list if I had made it.
I'm with you, mudbug. Just wish they had included Norma Shearer. I read somewhere that she was slightly cross-eyed as a child, which gives her rather unconventional looks. I'm rather partial to her as an actress. And I could have done without Julia Roberts - Yikes!
Check out "Gold Diggers of 1933" to see Ginger Rogers in her first role. Polished, of course, but not in the glossy way she was later when dancing with Fred. Good movie, and one of the few at the time to address the social issues of life immediately after the Crash. Plus you get Joan Blondell and Ruby Keeler. It's a hat trick!
