@VolcanoMouse Maybe everyone remains deeply in love with "The Westing Game", although you'd think they'd go with "Turtle".
@Anne Helen Petersen Gene Tierney would be awesome! Or Jean Harlow, who I think you mentioned in passing in the Clara Bow entry.
@Rollo Treadway And isn't this the start of James Wong Howe's career as a cinematographer? I seem to recall that he got a reputation for being to shoot blue eyes in a way that made them pop more and became Mary Miles Minter's preferred cameraman.
@gimlet You've seen Kate Beaton on "Strong Female Characters", right? http://harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=311 (And there was a really fantastic review of "The Queen" that I can no longer find that looks at it through the lens of these ass-kicking ideal girlfriend roles.)
@pterodactgirl Norman Rush's "Mating"?
