Intriguing...........All the women pictured in the post are intriguing to me. I stop in my tracks whenever something about them is on TV, or one of their movies is on......Doris Day...I just love her! She is a great singer and a great comic actress....and so gorgeous!!! Pillow Talk is one of my fave movies!!!!
Also one of my favorite singers and actresses...Barbra Streisand! I love Funny Girl the best. I would love to read an autobiography by Barbra.
I love a few old Bette Davis movies too. Now Voyager is my favorite.
Hands down, the most intriguing woman ever to me is Princess Diana. I am still devastated that she died. I have many, many books about her. I wish she were still here. She was the most beautiful woman ever.
Joan Crawford. She was so gorgeous and such a great actress. Pictures of her from the 1930's and 1940's are so iconic looking. I love the movie Mildred Pierce.
I love Julianne Moore. I think she is such a great actress, not to mention the fact that she is so beautiful. My favorite movie of hers is Magnolia.
I would love to just sit and listen to Meryl Streep talk. She seems so interesting. I would love it if she would write an autobiography.

Who is intriguing to you?

About Joan Crawford - a nicer lady? How much have you read about her? She was a very nice lady, a wonderful woman. She had many great friends that have told wonderful stories about Joan etc...

Joan was awesome! I'm a huge fan.

In my heart, the only intriguing woman EVER, was my grandmother.

She was someone that everyone adored, especially her grandchildren.

{and Princess Di....well she won a spot in my heart, too}

I am with you on all of these women. Meryl Streep and her ability to take on dialect is fabulous. She made Karen Blixen come to life in Out of Africa. Amazing. Princess Diana...a stunning and wonderful woman. A major loss for mankind.

I changed my comments about Joan thanks to you! See the new updated version!

Beth, I guess I was just doing "famous" women. I totally understand what you are saying about your Grandma Ruby! My grandmas are like that for me too. I miss them so!

Donna, You are so right about Out of Africa. My husband hates that movie. I don't know why...I find it so gorgeous. In fact, I think I want to see it again sometime soon.

Thanks for stopping by you guys!

What a great post! Your sentiments echo mine especially for Princess Diana & Doris Day.

OMG YES...Mildred Pierce!!! Been a long time, but WONDERFUL movie!!! Love to old Doris Day movies too...she was such a cutie in those films. Love your other choices too!!! Bette Davis ROCKS..."Put on your seatbelts...It's gonna be a bumpy night!" Such great films!!!

We find lots of the same women fascinating -- including Diana (incredibly beautiful, so troubled, so giving -- a real tragedy); Barbra (I've seen FG more times than I can remember), Bette and Joan, Meryl S. -- what talent! (We watched "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" on Friday night! I like the pix you posted better! The only fave of mine you left off was Audrey Hepburn. Kate H. was pretty interesting too!

Great pictures and fabulous women. Here's my list (I'll probably think of a few more as soon as I click publish):

Judy Dench
Emma Thompson
Juliette Binoche
Meryl Streep
Jodi Foster
Julianna Moore
Audrey Hepburn
Princess Di

Yes, I feel exactly the same as you about Di. She got married the same year (and month) as I did. My first marriage failed, too. William was born a year before my daughter. Although we never met, I felt a connection to her and was so terribly sad when she died. I watched her wedding and I watched her funeral. She was the epitome of class and style. A regal woman with a heart of gold.

I'm with you on a few, but both Bette Davis and Joan Crawford give me the creeps in their movies. :<) Davis had a house near us, and there were local rumors she pushed her then-husband down the stairs. Who knows? I just heard that another child of Crawford's has written about her, and the tone is quite different from Mommie Dearest. Have you seen Down With Love, an homage to Pillow Talk? I loved it. If you haven't seen it, and you do rent the dvd, please watch the terrific extras.
