I have a great passion for classic films, classic Hollywood, and history. I love art, fashion from the late 1800s until the 1960s, and old photography.

"They´re both very cool, they´re very sophisticated, they´re very low key about it, they have a lot of wit, a lot of charm. But he is the master of the double entendre. He is the master of clever line delivery, that seems to be tossed casually over his shoulder. No one can handle him on screen - except Myrna Loy and puncture his balloon."

UNDERRATED ACTRESSES: 2/? →  IRENE DUNNE

Irene Marie Dunne (December 20, 1898 - September 4, 1990)
Nominated five times for Best Actress at the Academy Awards, Irene Dunne is known as the best actress to never win an Academy Award.  Irene made her first stage appearance in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at the young age of five. Growing up, Irene’s mother urged her to take voice and piano lessons. Early in her career, Irene wanted to be on the stage, yet she was too inexperienced and was often turned down after auditions. She was offered a lead in a theater company and thereafter, she preformed in numerous plays including Show Boat which landed her a contract with RKO in 1930. By the time she made her second film, she was nominated for Best Actress for her role in Cimarron (1931). The following four nominations were for Theodora Goes Wild (1936),  The Awful Truth (1937), Love Affair (1939) and I Remember Mama (1948). Irene Dunne was a singer and an actress, a comedienne and a dramatic. Her ability to portray one thing after another is unmistakable. So overlooked and so unappreciated. Irene Dunne, just like Jean Arthur, deserved much much more credit in Hollywood for their endless talent. Irene Dunne was a gift to the world. 
"I drifted into acting and drifted out. Acting is not everything. Living is."
- Irene Dunne

“Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that. Now, now. Here’s looking at you, kid.”

even though this was not technically a girl fight as soon as i saw this scene and Miram Hopkins’ face i thought of Scott from Orphan Black saying to Cosima “Wow, girl fights are mean” (this show has now even invaded my OH watching!!)
