'50s glamour ..... a summer re-visit

Greg is going to get some ravioli!
Kay Kendall again leads the pack on those '50s glamour gals - in LES GIRLS and THE RELUCTANT DEBUTANTE, plus Greg Peck & Dolores Gray in the hilarious restaruant scene in DESIGNING WOMAN - more Minnelli glamour - and those delirious ladies in THE OPPOSITE SEX, that MGM 1956 remake of 1939's THE WOMEN with added glamour, colour and music; 
plus Arlene Dahl vamping Clifton Webb in Negulesco's WOMAN'S WORLD and Joan terrorising the typing pool in THE BEST OF EVERYTHING. More on these and their stars at labels .... Of course glamour was also being supplied by the likes of Audrey and Grace, Elizabeth and Marilyn, Kim and Janet, Lee, Sophia, Brigitte, Ava and Susan, Jean and Deborah and others .... Jean Negulesco (see label) did his bit in promoting '50s glamour with all those movies like HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE, WOMAN'S WORLD and others ...
