There are only a few genuine stars of the 1930s and 40s left. And in 2015 we lost several. Gone are Maureen O’Hara, Louis Jordan, Luise Rainier (pictured above.)
And Movita died last year as well.
Movita Castaneda was a Mexican movie star who appeared as the South Seas beauty opposite Clark Gable in the 1935 version of Mutiny on the Bounty. Today she is best remembered as the first wife of Marlon Brando.
And one of Joe’s favorite actresses died in 2015. Joan Leslie, whose career spanned more than 50 years from her film debut in Garbo‘s Camille to her work on “Murder She Wrote,” was 90.
Catch her in The Hard Way, The Male Animal, High Sierra, and, of course, Repeat Performance.
