Can anybody point me in the direction of a retro mood theme?


Shine Light on a Actress?

[30 Sep 2004|02:06am]

I got excessively bored in the wee hours of the morning and made some icons. Mostly Kathryn Grayson/Howard Keel, and one Ann Miller. Comment, credit, and all that jazz, kiddos.

The Talented Trio...Collapse )

They're not super duper, flying out of your screen awesome graphics, but there you are. Plus, with the likes of Kathryn, Annie, and Howard, does one truly need dancing letters to impress? :D

Kathryn and Jeanette [18 Sep 2004|06:18pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

Alright, finished a new set of icons. They are Kathryn Grayson and Jeanette MacDonald. I know they aren't the most popular actresses, but I love them nevertheless. Hope you enjoy them. Give me some suggestions for actresses to do. Or actors. :)

A Kathryn Grayson Question [15 Sep 2004|07:13pm]

[ mood | blah ]

I thought someone might know. I am trying to download the Jeanette MacDonald/Nelson Eddy song "Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life". I got one, but it said it was Kathryn Grayson and Mario Lanza. I fifnally downloaded one thaty said is was Mac/Eddy. But I listened to it and its the same as the Kathryn one. Did Kathryn record this song, because now that I listen to it, it sounds more like Jeanette than Kathryn, but I'm not sure.

Jane Powell is cheesy 50's musical love

Kathryn Grayson is soprano love

Esther Williams is swimming musical love

Mariam Hopkins [12 Aug 2004|03:33pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

I know she isn't on the the communities interests, but I believe that Mariam Hopkins doesn't get enough attention. She was an amazing actress. I have seen four of films. The Old Maid with Bette Davis. About a woman seeing her cousin raise her daughter while she remains an old maid. Old Acquaintance again with Bette Davis. About two writer friends, one write trashy novels while the other writes serious books, feuding over the years. These Three with Merle Oberon. About a little girl who tells lies about her teachers, ruining their lives. And The Heiress with Olivia De Havilland. About a woman who is being courted by a man whom her father thinks is only after the money. Mariam was beautiful and had great performances. I have yet to see Becky Sharp, one of her oscar nominated roles. Hope you all will look into seeing some of her films.

Donna Reed [10 Jul 2004|02:38pm]

Here’s a pile of captures of Donna Reed from her one year (1984-85) stint as Miss Ellie Ewing Farlow on Dallas. Still a lovely lady even so soon before her death. Since she had more scenes with screen hubby Howard Keel than she did alone, he’s featured quite a bit in these, too. Just thought I’d give the boy a nod. ;)

More DonnaCollapse )

Still more Barbara Bel Geddes [05 Jul 2004|12:51am]

Hehehe, I knocked myself out on these. In a big, big way. I can’t help it, I just love Barbara! She’s just a great lady.
These are all Dallas captures, though. I have about three thousand sitting around so I figure I may as well make use of them! :D

A whole lot of BarbaraCollapse )

Barbara Bel Geddes [02 Jul 2004|12:04am]

One of my all-time favorite actresses has to be Barbara Bel Geddes, who is best known for her work in Vertigo and Dallas, not to mention being THE original “Maggie the Cat” in the Broadway production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.

I’ve enclosed a bunch of pics (all screen captures except the two below) of Barbara in Vertigo and then in the 1980's as the wealthy Eleanor Southworth Ewing Farlow in Dallas (some of which also feature her screen hubby of a decade, Howard Keel - the two below, for instance :D)


I heart candids, BTW.

More Barbara picsCollapse )

Patricia Neal [29 Jun 2004|03:15pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

Ok, so this post is inspired from TCM having the premier of Private Screenings: Patricia Neal, on last night... Did anyone else catch it?  What a phenomenal woman!  I've been a fan of hers for years, but there was some stuff from that documentary that I had NO idea about... Like, the reason she has such a deep voice... yeah, I NEVER knew that...  Anyway, I just wanted to bring her up and maybe add a few pics or something... I have a page dedicated to her on my website, if y'all want to look, the address is, http://theclassics33.homestead.com/PatriciaNeal1.html

Hello everyone!

My name is Ashley, I'm new here, and very excited to talk about classic movie actresses with you all because, after all, classic movies are one of my three favorite things. At any rate, I hope to get to know you all! :)

Hi, I hope you don't mind if I advertise a community dedicated to Shirley Jones, one of the most talented yet underrated musical actresses ever here. Once it gets started, I'm sure it will be great!
