Hollywood has been going on as the peak of showbusiness for quite a long time now, so it gets kind of easy to forget which amazing stars it has produced in the past.
And because we care about you guys (we really do), we’ll give you a quick reminder of some of the best actresses Hollywood has produced in the olden days.
The only real Cleopatra of the sixties, Elizabeth kept on acting until she was almost 70 years old! The number of iconic roles she’s had are hard to sum up in one article, but her IMDB page should probably lead you to a few “oh, that was her!” moments.
No relationship to Audrey Hepburn, for the record. She played her last role in 1994, at which point she was already 87 years old. She had her biggest moments of fame in the fifties and sixties, playing in movies like The Lion In Winter and The African Queen.
All About Eve, What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?, Dark Victory, … Bette Davis has a career spanning over 5 decades in the movie business. Her final movie actually released in the year she passed away, at which time she was aged 81 years old!
There’s few things left to say about Marilyn Monroe, since she’s pretty much never left the media since her rise to fame. She was an actress, model, sex symbol and pretty much the “it” girl of her time.
Audrey’s most famous role was probably the one in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, but she mostly managed to make an impact because of her unique looks and style. Even today, people still look to her for inspiration.
Yes, this is in fact the one and only Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. We don’t really need to mention anything else to prove that she was important to Hollywood, right? The movie was made 80 years ago and everyone still knows about it.
Grace Kelly has made quite a legacy for herself, partially because she sadly passed away at the early age of 52. She starred in movies like To Catch a Thief and Dial M For Murder, which are still good movies by modern standards.
Probably best known for her role in Casablanca, this Swedish actress was a lovely beauty from Hollywood’s Golden Era. She played in many big name movies in the fourties, like Spellbound and Notorious. She also had a role in Murder on the Orient Express, which was 30 years later.
