Today is the birthday of two pretty different and yet both, in their own ways, sexy as heck actors -- Chris Pratt, goofball turned beefcake, is turning 37, while Benjamin Walker, sleek Broadway psychopath, is turning 34.
And while it's true that Ben's become the yardstick (12 inches to a yard have ya soundin' like...) by which I measure any man in tighty-whities (sidenote: yes I realize Chris is technically in boxer-briefs; let's not hang ourselves up here) I just couldn't resist it again...
"Rain was her first real starring role. She's quite good in Daisy Kenyon and in Sadie Makee. Dancing Lady is fun, and she dances with Fred Astaire. The Bride Wore Red is also quite good. And of course, there's her magnificent performance in The Women."
"Possessed (1931 version. She made 2 movies by that name. Fitting somehow). Sadie McKee - 3 leading men and the great song "All I Do Is Dream of You". Laughing Sinners - She joins the Salvation Army!"
--- For the great Joan Crawford's birthday I asked y'all to recommend some of her early films to see, and I got many answers - to single out a couple that's what Pierce & DCameron had to say. I guess I have some binge-Joaning to do! What do you think?
