My Classic Hollywood Alphabet

Hi there!

Recently, Meredith of the super wonderful blog Forever Classics (it's also in my blog roll, so check it out) did her Classic Hollywood actor alphabet. A few other classic movie blogs have done the same, and I totally love the idea so I thought I'd give it a try.

Before I start, I got a BUNCH of Old Hollywood books over the past week or so (Rianna must not go to the bookstore for at least another month. Rianna must not. She mustn't...). I thought I'd start from the shortest biography and move my way up, so I'm reading "Jean Arthur: The Actress Nobody Knew" right now. But a lot of the other biographies are looking tempting - Ava's especially - so I would really appreciate if you could vote in the poll and let me know what you think I ought to read (and review) next. Thank you :)

Also, if you've been keeping up with FranklyMyDearTV on Youtube, you'll see that I've done a couple of tribute videos that I haven't shared here yet. I just finished one this morning and thought it would be nice to share:

I'm really mad because I couldn't get everyone in that video that I wanted to get in, but anyhow, it's a Classic Hollywood tribute set to "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay. Hope you enjoy.


A is for Audrey Hepburn

B is for Bette Davis

C is for Cary Grant

D is for Doris Day

E is for Elizabeth Taylor

F is for Fred Astaire

G is for Grace Kelly

H is for Humphrey Bogart

I is for Ingrid Bergman

J is for Jean Arthur

K is for Katharine Hepburn

L is for the loveliest of them all! : Lucille Ball <3

M is for Myrna Loy

N is for Natalie Wood

O is for Olivia de Havilland

P is for Paul Newman

Okay, so obviously enough : I couldn't find any Old Hollywood actor for "Q". Sorries!

R is for Rita Hayworth

S is for Sophia Loren

T is for Tallulah Bankhead, dahhhhlings

V is for Vivien Leigh

W is for William Holden

Z is for Zsa Zsa Gabor - because there was no one else!


Well, in the words of Porky Pig, that's all for now, folks!...

And don't forget to vote in my poll!

PS: I'm not tagging any of the twenty-six actors in this because Blogger won't let me tag them all!
