We were a bit surprised that when we ran the picture of these popular beauties of the past so few of you recognized them.
They are (from left to right) Maureen O’Hara, Brenda Marshall, Ann Rutherford, Laraine Day and Rita Hayworth.
Guesses had ranged from Deborah Kerr to Joan Fontaine.
Reader Renata knew Ann Rutherford and Laraine Day. Our pal Caftan Woman got them all correct. And one new correspondent, Michael Shiles, not only identified all the women but for good measure noted that Paulette Goddard was on the cover of the fan magazine they were reading.
Some of these famous ladies also had famous husbands. Any guesses?
