We know the term “legend” is bandied about these days, promiscuously linked to every 15- seconds-of-fame celebrant.

But pictured here today are a few genuine legends of the 20th century. In fact we’d venture to say that the women pictured above were the most famous women in the United States in their day, and are still admired by millions today.

And the men above revolutionized motion picture making.

And these four, as the saying goes, need no introduction.

Are they legends?  Yes!
