Wednesday Challenge



 Today the challenge is celebrity crushes. At my age let me count...…  Okay I've narrowed it down to the 50's through the 80's.


The very first movie NBC aired on its Saturday Night at the Movies was How to Marry a Millionaire. I was around seven or eight years old at the time and I was smitten with Marilyn Monroe.






My next heart throb was watching Audrey Hepburn sit in a window and singing Moon River. I also liked the way she wore a toga. 












Elizabeth Taylor knocked my socks off in Cleopatra. At ten years old I didn't care about all the fuss and feathers about her leaving husband number whatever for whoever was the next. 
I do have a story. A fellow teacher told me he was at the Albuquerque Airport when Elizabeth Taylor walked through. Her husband, Nicky Hilton died in a plan crash in New Mexico and she was coming to collect the remains. My friend said as she walked through everyone froze solid. She was so beautiful everyone stood in slack jawed amazement.



As a young teenager it was the perfect time for movies to break the chains of censorship and start showing nudity. but  when Natalie Wood wearing a white turtleneck and green mini-skirt walked down a hall in Bob and Ted and Carol and Alice my heart nearly stopped. All the blood in my body went south. Barbarella who?




Of all the women I had a crush on Morgan Fairchild had the best combination of gorgeous face, fantastic body and ability to make a caustic comment. 






She was paired against Victoria Principal in the first season of Dallas. Talk about pure eye candy. Blonde bombshell against wholesome brunette. Having both of them in love with me... I'd become a Mormon..

Omgosh, yeah, Natalie Wood was a dazzler. You've named pretty much all of my DH's favorites. He's a sucker for Marilyn Monroe. Hepburn was all grace, too. Good ones!

Glad to know someone else agrees with me, Judy.

Of all of them Natalie Wood was by far my favorite. Glad you liked my choices, Megan.

Yes, Elizabeth Taylor was gorgeous for sure!

I think you've literally made the "who's who" of gorgeous women. IMHO Audrey Hepburn was one of the most perfectly classically beautiful women of all time.

Mary Morgan said...

Impressive choices! All stunning women! Audrey Hepburn was always a favorite of mine.

P M Prescott said...

In her prime, she surely was, Lydia.

P M Prescott said...

Unofficial poll, Audrey Hepburn seems to be the winner here. She was the pure definition of class. Thanks for your comment Marianne.

P M Prescott said...

As well as many others, Mary. Thanks for coming by.

Audrey Hepburn is such a classic beauty. I think the first thing I watched with her in it was Roman Holiday. Breakfast at Tiffany's is a fav in our house, too. Great list!
