How incredible is it that a woman who was in Gone with the Wind is still alive? That blows my mind (away with the wind).
Please, NO! They both did some horror at the end of their movie career, but those were actually very good movies. Let them retain their grace and dignity.
Funny you should pick Joan Crawford in the picture. Not sure she was ever in a good movie. Or acted well for that matter.This dreadful movie also had a distinguished English actor--someone who's been in a ton of bad movies, has only ever won a BAFTA TV Award, spent time as a POW in a Nazi prison camp, and also portrayed a prisoner in one of the greatest WWII movies. IMHO, he's among the most underrated star actors of all time.
Joan Collins! Joan Crawford is considered the very first female movie superstar, and well deserved. She's in my first post (#5). Yeah, Joan Collins didn't have a good movie career. I'm sure her opportunities were worse than her ability, but most Brits fared poorly in Hollywood. She did better on TV. She was on Star Trek (original) when they went back to earth in the 1930's and couldn't prevent her death. She's the first person that comes to mind when I think of bad female horror stars, right before Adrienne Barbeau.Funny you should pick Joan Crawford in the picture.

Agree on Donald Pleasance - highly underrated, but some of his movie choices sucked.
Reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode Kick the CanAt least Joan Collins was really pretty. Sorry, couldn't resist. I think I agree with Donald Pleasence. He was in so many movies. It was really remarkable. I remember one from his later years in which he and some other oldsters make their escape from a group home and were going to retreat to some Eden. I cannot remember the details but he played a aging German chap who was once a big game hunter. He wanted to provide fare for the group. He pulled of these 'foreign' characters so well you forgot he was English. Good call.
I knew this thread would work.
