Old Hollywood...

Because I love it and so should you... After seeing a few of our younger girls trying to imitate the women of yesteryear and going through photo after photo of beautiful OLD photographs, I thought, "Hey! Why not post a few?". So that is exactly what I'm going to do. Here's a quick game, can you guys name the women of each photo? Bonus points for number 3.
UPDATE: Answers 1. Lucille Ball
2. Ava Gardner
I listed then easiest to hardest.

There is not one single woman in Hollywood today that can hold a candle to these women. These women were graceful, elegant, and respectful of themselves.

Lucille Ball! :o) That's the only one I know.

Thanks for posting these, Vi. I'm not one to crow about Hollywood setting moral examples...but I can't help but think there wouldn't be THIS WIDESPREAD of an eating disorder craze were these women the current leading ladies instead of the Lohans and the Richies and the Hiltons of this world...

Thank you guys. I thought they were just amazing pics with amazing REAL looking graceful women. I too think that eating disorders wouldn't be so popular if "leading" ladies didn't give the idea of beauty to these impressionable girls.

Anyways you guys are on the right track.

CLUE for the last one. She starred in a movie with Rock Hudson...

Nope not Doris although I did almost post her picture. She was definitely a cute blond vs. sexy blond. I loved all her movies...
