Alphabe Thursday.


This week we start again with the letter A for Ms Matlock’s class.  I don’t remember what I posted last year but I thought of something else today.

I chose photo’s of some of my ALL time favorite  movie  Actresses and Actors. I think most young people these days don’t  know them but when I was young they were the stars and I saw each and every film of them.. Always. Maybe some of my older friends here still know their faces and names.  I still love watching them when they are on TV.  I had more favorites but I don’t have good photo’s of them any more.  All these photo’s I scanned from the photo’s I still have of them.  When I was a teenager I collected moviestar photo’s and I still have most of them, about 150.  I once wanted to sell them because I don’t look at them any more but I never got around doing that. Doris Day was my most favorite star.  I do have about 70 photo’s of her.  It was big business then.

So here we go, down Memory  Lane. I start with the ladies. Remember them?  They were all beautiful.

And the gentlemen, they were all so handsome.

And some couples who starred in famous films. Of course you all know Audrey Hepburn . I missed her photo for the ladies collage so here she is in the middle. She was so beautiful.

You still know the names?  Kathryn Grayson and Howard Keel and

Doris Day and Gordon McRay,  on the left.  On the right you can see the names.

Have a nice week.

Lieve Riet,

Dank je wel voor je gezellige berichtje op mijn blog! Het was heerlijk in Engeland. Wat is het toch een prachtig land. Jammergenoeg stond er nog niet zoveel in bloei in de tuinen die wij hebben bezocht, maar dat mocht de pret niet drukken.

Je collage vind ik prachtig! Wat waren die oude films mooi :-) Jammergenoet zijn ze niet meer zo veel om tv.

Fijne avond & liefs,

Madelief x

Ik was in een bar vandaag waar er veel soortgelijke foto's hingen. Het was zeer aantrekkelijk.

Wat een mooie collages waarmee we even een duik maken in het verleden! Niet alle acteurs zijn mij even bekend maar Doris Day met haar specifieke stem ken ik zeker nog wel hoor!!

Een fijne avond, hier is het na een flinke onweersbui aangenaam afgekoeld!

Lieve groet, Ingrid

SO many of my favorites are here Riet. My favorite was Doris Day too as far as the women go, and my favorite male actor was Heston.
I loved Audrey and Barbara Stanwyck too.
I loved how Bing could sing and how Danny Kaye could dance. I could have watched him for hours.
I loved this fun post down memory lane.
sending love from here...

Audrey was so elegant and Doris so perky and sweet! Now we are stuck with Lindsay and company...

Lieve Rietje,

Wowwww heerlijke post laat je zien zeg, ben helemaal gek van dit soort foto's.

De charme van vroeger, krijg meteen weer het gevoel hoe dat voeger ging, samen gezellig naar de film. En in een ver verleden was dat ook echt een avondje uit, heerlijke sfeer altijd.

Erg mooi je collage's!!!


Dorothy said...

I still love to watch the old classic movies on T.V.! What a bunch of beautiful photos you shared with us! Audrey Hepburn was an original classic beauty! Thank you for sharing!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I remembered most of them!

Marjonel M said...

Leuke post, af en toe komt er nog een film op tv met deze filmsterren mijn moeder was daar vroeger ook altijd fan van dus ik ken ze ook allemaal.

Fijne dag, marjonel

oude tijden herleven hier lieve riet,
prachtig om te zien


Maggie said...

Is it really time to star at A again? I've missed so many classes, I'll probably get a detention!
I did something similar to this post for my very first A-T, I love vintage movie star photos, they're magical.

biebkriebels said...

O wat leuk! Dat is een heel grote verzameling en nu kan je ze eens met ons delen. Ik was meer van de filmsterren hierna, maar Audrey Hepburn was ik wel een fan van.
Roman Holliday hebb ik een paar keer gezien en hij blijft leuk.

Juliëtte said...

Riet, allemaal bekende acteurs voor mij!
Ik had van de winter nog een tik van oude films kijken!
Die oude romantiek vind je bijna in enkele moderne film terug!

Liefs, Juliëtte

Judie said...

I remember them all, but Charlton Heston was never a favorite of mine. This was a wonderful idea for an "A" post, Riet.

anitamombanita said...

Times have changed, haven't they. Although I'm sure they had their share of drama, these were all class acts.

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

I do, I do remember the names. I never ever missed a Doris Day movie growin' up.

My Mama used to work in a theater and introduced me to the likes of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. Love 'em!

God bless ya sweetie and have a fantastic day!!! :o)

Sue said...

This was fun. My two favorites? Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant.

Nice nostalgia. Love old movies and I see lots of folks I love here. I'm really a big fan of 30's movies so I'd add Myrna Loy and William Powell for sure...
