Moira, Moira, Moira...you're quite a card. I love your descriptions.* * * *
Hi there Mary Kate...nice thread. I'd like to jump into the DNA fray with you guys with a couple of chromosonal picks of my own.These gals are not dead ringers for each other, but I think they all look like they could've been in the same gene pool. Here's what I mean...SOFT AND BROWN:
There were some showstopping and dazzling brunettes back in the day: Ava, Gene, Jean, Elizabeth. But let me scale it down a bit. These ladies are no less brunette, but just a softer variety. I don't get confused, but these ladies often remind me of each other:GALE PAGE, MARGARET LINDSAY
and FREDI WASHINGTON: FABULOUSLY, MARVELOUSLY FELINE:
Here are two lovely felines. Panthers actually, or cougars? I dunno which breed of cat they are. I do
know that these sloe-eyed beauties look similar:LAUREN BACALL
and CHARLOTTE RAMPLING UPTOWN, CLASSY...PATRICIAN:
There are blondes and there are blondes.
This time ‘round I’m not talking about the Bombshells. This time let’s look at the Patrician. Yes, Grace Kelly set the 50’s standard and broke the mold...but she’s got a couple of little blonde siblings right behind her. (Dagnabit, I’ve still
got to tell you about “The Best of Everything”). They're not warm like Faye or Grable. Here are two ice blondes that might've come from some Nordic Revlon'd flaxen-haired stock:SURELY YOU JEST:
And yes, you may call them Shirley. Girls-next-door. Kind of peaches and cream. In the dark at the top of the stairs, they played with Elmer Gantry. You know who I'm talking about...don't they look like they could be related?SHIRLEY JONES
and SHIRLEY KNIGHT
I've got more...but I always seem to go over the top.
