Gene Tierney was beautiful and moving in the movie “The ghost and Mrs. Muir” with Rex Harrison, directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz in 1947.
Jean Arthur was abble to play comic roles but also moving ones. My favourite movie of her is “Mr. Deeds goes to town” with Gary Cooper, directed by Frank Capra (1936).
Audrey Hepburn was adorable and marvellous in the movie “Sabrina”with Humphrey Bogart and William Holden, directed by Billy Wilder in 1954.
The most beautiful actress of all the times (to my mind), Ava Gardner was magnificent in the movie “Pandora and the Flying Dutchman” with James Mason, directed by Albert Lewin in 1951.
I adored Claudette Colbert in the movie “It happened one night“with Clark Gable, directed by Frank Capra” in 1934.
Bette Davis delivered a memorable performance in the movie “What ever happened to Baby Jane?” with Joan Crawford, directed by Robert Aldrich in 1963.
Jane Fonda was remarkable in the movie “Klute” with Donald Sutherland, directed by Alan J. Pakula in 1971.
