13976 ratings | 1988746 views
A countdown of the 50 most beautiful and talented Old Hollywood actresses (mostly from before the 1960's). Please no rude comments. All of these women are amazing in my opinion and I believe that everyone is beautiful in their own way! I hope you enjoy this video! The images are from Google Images. The music is 'Unchained Melody' from the soundtrack of the film, 'Ghost'. Here is a link to the music if you are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o3ck_UmqQI :)

Most of these women were true "triple threats" .... they could sing + dance + act (stage AND screen) Love your list, but IMO you left out the superb Leslie Caron 😍🤩, but I have to put a new girl on "my list", the very striking Veronica Lake! It's great remembering how beautiful Jayne Mansfield and Brigitte Bardot were, and Barbara Stanwyck's beauty was much deeper than just her face 😃 Gene Tierney is often over looked in these types of discussions, so thank you for including her! ps - you shouldn't title it with "...Old Hollywood", but say Golden Era and Silver Era. Great list though!

Judy Garland was never billed as a beauty queen but she was. She should be in the top 10. Look at her in For Me & My Gal or Babes On Broadway or The Pirate or A Star Is Born or Girl Crazy. The list goes on and on.

Hedy Lamarr would be at the top of my list

Wish we had some "celebrities without makeup" pictures of these movie stars.

I'll never forget the scene at the end of Showboat where a sick and dying Ava Gardner blows a kiss goodbye to the showboat as it pulls out. I was probably about 6 when I saw it but I have always thought from that moment on that Ava Gardner was the most beautiful woman in the world. No real make-up, nothing to enhance her eyes and yet...stunning.

NO rude comments but the pics of Bette Davis do not show the actress's best looks. Anything from the 1930s would have been better, especially the Pre-Code films (such as "Three On a Match"). By the time she was Margo Channing, ...

Ivonne De Carlo and Maureen O'Hara were turned into protagonists of their extravagant films. But neither of them managed to overcome María's marvelous stage presence, nor her charming narcissism, nor was she as unique as the most convincing of the escapist film queens that would be perpetuated as the * Queen of the Tenicolor *, as none of her heirs will receive So lavish title. According to Jerry Vermille, in Screen Facts, No. 13, Vol. 3 (page 19), 1966, USA.
E tudo passa 😓

SLY SPY (14 days ago)
While this is a great list I'm sure there;s more who could or should be added , the fact is they are all beauties each with there own style . For me a great pair of eyes does it for they will look into your heart and make you melt

Mia Christian (15 days ago)
Bring back Hollywood glamour. Thank you. You certainly have a "type" you consider beautiful. Your list has many I would include but certainly not in your order. Out of curiosity what is your age. I'm 40 and a lot of my friends can't understand my love of the old movies not to mention the music during this time.

Claudia Cardinale Katharine Ross Catherine Deneuve My Mom But not all the drop-nosed ladies on your list.
alfred j. Lebrio (15 days ago)
I would re do this list to 100 actresses because you left out loads of beauties ann Sheridan jean Arthur myrna loy, bebe neuwirth, Loretta young, lupe velez,alice faye, fay wray, linda darnell, Ingrid bergman billie burke, Jennifer jones, Raquel welch, Ursula andress, mitzi Gaynor, vera-ellen, natalie wood I guess you know where i'm going with this......
alfred j. Lebrio (15 days ago)
i agree with your list almost 100%. but how can you have ethel waters and Katherine Hepburn on it but not carole landis and gina lollabrigida?
Tom Paine (15 days ago)
Dang Liz Taylor was beautiful when she was younger. I'd rank Olivia D'Haviland higher and Doris Day much lower, if not dropped, but a pretty pleasing video over all. They are all beautiful even Doris. Hard to get too much of looking at pretty faces. Oh, I'd probably move Barbara Stanwick up the list, too. I especially like the very early one of her.

I wonder how many of these actresses were sexually exploited and abused by the males in the industry back then? If only they had a voice now, I hate to imagine what they did to tthose women.

SLAY MOONLIGHT (21 days ago)
The truth is that it hurts me a lot not to see here the queen of technicolor Maria Montez Dominican actress who triumph in hollywood, so great was her success that she was recognized as the queen of technicolor for her films filmed in technicolor, she was an exotic beauty in the 40s as the best actress of universal picture, it is difficult to remember her because she died very young at 39 years of age of a myocardial infarction of drowning in the bathtub of her bathroom at home in France with her husband the French actor, Jean -pierre aumont, and they had as daughter the actress tina aumont, a legend in the Dominican Republic as well as in holllywood where she knew how to leave a mark, her beauty, her charisma, and her talent put her in the eye of fame, completely precious. she was a beautiful woman and sure of herself, may she rest in peace even though many now do not give her the recognition she deserves, she will always be a Dominican legend and pride

Alas Hollywood's golden age will never be again. Nowadays, it is mostly filth with a touch of inane thrown in. There really aren't any rare beauties like this. I mean there are good actresses but not these screen goddesses of yesteryear. I would add a few....Norma Shearer, Rosalind Russell, Greer Garson, Palette Goddard, Maureen O'Hara, Gloria Swanson, Jennifer Jones, June Haver, Ingrid Bergman, Marion Davies and of course Loretta Young.
Kevin Doran (21 days ago)
You won't get any rude comments from me. I am a 63 year old baby boomer and I feel that I was born about 30 years too late. All 50 of these women were (and are) amazing talents and beautiful and classy looking women. Every time I see a picture of young Lauren Bacall, I just can't take my eyes off of her. If you wouldn't mind I would like to add two more to the list. Ida Lupino (High Sierra with Bogart) and Donna Reed. I am sure that many of us could turn this list in to the top 100. Great post. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

It would be interesting to see them all without that period makeup. Would they be beautiful by today's standards with today's makeup?
