Oscar Night..Remembering Old Hollywood Glamour

A night at the Oscars! If only things were as they used to be!
Hollywood, old Hollywood, seemed to have such glamour, such intrigue and excitement. The women of Hollywood had enormous style. Perhaps as we age, we identify more with the people we grew up with and marveled at when we were children. I like it that way. I pay tribute to the women of Hollywood who seemed to be larger than life on that big screen....what memories they gave us!

Katherine Hepburn
Olivia de Haviland
Joan Crawford
Elsa Lanchester
Elizabeth Taylor
Tallulah Bankhead
Lana Turner
Vivien Leigh

Norma Shearer

Anne Bancroft

Barbara Stanwyck
 Rosemary Clooney

Judy Garland


  1. My favorite was always Katherine Hepburn. I just watched 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?' today. Great movie. You can really see the love between her and Spencer Tracy. It was true love.

    1. I read Ms. Hepburn's biography and also a book about Spencer Tracy and Kat Hepburn's long relationship. She was devoted to him for years and years....a fascinating read!

  2. Rosemary Clooney's dress (black fishtail)in White Christmas!!!!!

    1. Wasn't she just beautiful? Who does not fall in love with the movie White Christmas? My mother simply adored Rosemary Clooney!


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
