The Great John Wayne
Hollywood's box-office A-List Film stars of the
past, especially the Hollywood greats of the silent movie period
included Rudolf Valentino, Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Buster
Keaton, Laurel & Hardy and a whole host of stars whose talents
live on in the many characters they portrayed. Many televisions
have seen stars such as Jean Harlow, who is, perhaps, one of
the most successful of the stars who began their career in the
silent era and whose star continued in ascendancy into the talkies.
The western film genre has been the birth place for many great
film stars, not least of which is the Great John Wayne. Blockbuster
movies dominated the 80's and 90's with Silvester Stallone,
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis competing for the title
greatest action hero of them all... and then Matt Damon brought
Ludlum's character Jason Bourne to life all too vividly and
a whole new action hero was born.
And, although great women's roles are still all to rare, Vivien
Leigh's Scarlet O'Hara in Gone With The Wind, Marilyn Monroe's
Sugar Kane in Some Like It Hot, Grace Kelly as Tracy Lord in
High Society, Michelle Pfeifer in the Baker Boys and Julie Roberts
in Erin Brockovich are just a few great and memorable perfomances
I have experience by women in the movies...
