    Out of all the classic stars from the Hollywood Golden era, which actor deserves a huge mention and deserves a movie to be made? Discuss which actor do you had in mind and who do you think is qualify to play that role...

    Wow there are many that would make good stories based on the books that I've read. The first three to spring to mind are Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Wood and Burt Lancaster. I will have to give the casting some thought.

    A slow and unreliable internet connection ate a long detailed post summarizing her life. It took me an hour <sigh>

    In a name: Louise Brooks

    Oh that would be excellent, I recently reread Lulu In Hollywood.
    The life of Luise Rainer would also make a decent movie.

    She did an amazing interview with Vanity Fair about 10 years ago. I'll look for it, meanwhile give this a quick read.

    I did know that. She is good friends with Jill Robinson who looks in on her.

    I'm not sure when the "Hollywood Golden Era" was, but I think a biography on Rock Hudson would be cool. Being gay in Hollywood in that day and age was probably pretty interesting.
