Thanks so much for visiting my blog! It's always so nice to "meet" new people...especially when they have lovely vintage blogs!

Very nice list...though I would differ with you on some points. No Marlon Brando...Paul Newman??? *gasp* :D

Ohhh! I love Cary Grant, James Dean, Humphrey Bogart, and Frank Sinatra! Their all fabulous. I wish there were more fans of James Dean. I am huge fan of his but don't find many people who are as well.
