GREAT list! And lovely photos!

And, I'm sorry I said Olivia was 50 zillion times cooler and more amazing then Joan on my list! Hehehe, I just coudn't resist it over there!

Definitely some of my favourites! I always have loved Myrna Loy. No one else could've played Nora Charles in my mind!

For peace's sake, I'm not sure I want to include either de Havilland sister on my list...

Great list. Glad to see you included the likes of Joan Leslie and Ida Lupino. By the way that's a cool photo of Ida. Never seen that one before.

If you want to see an amazing Myrna Loy movie, you must see the 1939 movie "The Rains Came". In my opinion, Ms. Loy's greatest role!
