Isn't she about 40 years too young for you maybe?
And the other thing not in her favour, is that she is still alive.

Whereas I am not so choosy. I am happy to take a mere world supermodel.

 Very Happy

Sizzled in the 1981 "Body Heat".
Has a sensational jazz soundtrack to match.
Made mincemeat out of William Hurt.

Always thought she was something else in "Romancing the Stone" and "Jewel of the Nile" with Michael Douglas.

And then they reprised that body language with Danny Devito in "War of the Roses".

Among a few other screen gems, she was the bees knees.

This was on last night.

NICOLE KIDMAN

In the movie Grace Of Monaco
The movie is getting harsh reviews
The royals are very unhappy with the film content saying its a poor portrayal of Graces life

Has she hit rock botTOM with this film ?
Is it a panTOMine acting performance ?
Or is this criticism disGRACEful ?

Bad press = I want to see the film
If Kidman  looks half as good as Grace it would be worth it


I think Kidman is a very good actress
One of Australia's  best ever actresses in my opinion
She plays many roles very well
She is almost 6 foot tall , was 5 foot 9 when she was 13
And she remains a very very attractive woman into her 40's

She goes to great lengths at times , with a fake nose , to avoid the papparazzi
Is known to be conscious of skin cancers
Very often wears hats whenever she is out  
I wonder if she wears tURBANs ?

Dangerous subject perhaps.
Grace is my all time best ever fave actress. A goddess if ever there was one.
Any diminution of that is akin to heresy in my view.

How does a 6 foot tall actress play a 5 foot 6 actress?
Tall actors I suppose.  Question

Grace Kelly.

Which of the following to you regard as her best role?

High Society (on TV yesterday)
Rear Window
Dial M For Murder (On TV Saturday)
To Catch a Thief
High Noon

3 of them are Alfred Hitchcock films.

High Society her best part
High Noon the best movie

Some of Hitchy's blonde ladies;
Grace
Doris Day
Tippi Hedren
Kim Novak
Eva Marie Saint
Janet Leigh

1954 - 1963 was perhaps Hitchy's golden era where he used his "favourites" and the leading ladies were all blonde. His faves were; Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, but also some others who he coudn't always secure.
I think he would have had Grace Kelly in every one of the movies in this period if he could.

Rear Window, To Catch a Thief and High Society were similar roles in Grace playing an Upper Class socialite. However, from different perspectives all of them.

However, I can't decide between To Catch a Thief and Rear Window as her best role.

I regard Rear Window as Hitchock's best work. To hold an audience from the view from 1 room for an entire movie was his masterful directing at its best. Grace positively smoulders in this. You feel a tingle in the loins and nobody gets even remotely close to naked in it. It is said that Jimmy Stewart is the only leading man she was never romantically linked to.
Foolish boy!

I wonder if the premise for the original Pink Panther was in some way framed around to Catch a Thief. Similar stories based around a cat burglar robbing high society parties complete with a masquerade/fancy dress party and fireworks.

Chambo
Interesting you picked Rear Window 
Im a BIG James Stewart fan , adore Grace Kelly , but without those 2 in the movie perhaps this flick might have been ordinary

Another iffy to compare with
Pink Panther and To Catch A Thief
Is the Ryan Oneal movie The Thief That Came To Dinner

There was a discussion about Ryan Oneal being a real life boxer on TFSA
He did some boxing in The Thief That Came To Dinner against Gregory Sierra 
He also kissed Jaqueline Bissett , lucky man

JAYNE MANSFIELD

Now this is was a very stunning woman
In he movie Promises Promises she is acknowledged as being the first nude actress in a motion picture

It ended to early for at 34 years of age, dying in a car accident
Three adults and 3 of Jaynes children were in the car accident that claimed her life
Remarkably the 3 adults died, the 3 kids lived on

One of those kids was a 3 and half year old who was sleeping in the back seat
That was Jaynes daughter Mariska Hargitay
Hargitay has since made a name for herself as an actress, probably best known as Olivia in the TV series Law And Order

Mariska features on this site
www.mariska.com

Question who was the more attractive woman
Marilyn Monroe
Jayne Mansfield

Jayne but only bust, I mean just
