Marian Marsh is dedicated to the most beautiful classic actresses during the first 50 years of Hollywood...remembering them when they were young and beautiful.

We are so sick of seeing history's most beautiful female actors portrayed as old women.  How many times have you seen Joan Crawford as a 50 year old with enormous eyebrows and clown-like lipstick, Bette Davis as a shaky old woman with a cigarette, Elizabeth Taylor at 220 pounds, or Shirley MacLaine as a psychic nutcase? 

These actresses burst onto the Hollywood scene as beautiful young women, and they should be remembered as the gorgeous girls that they were.   We want everyone to experience the beauty of these women, to encourage you to watch their old movies, and to fall in love with them, as moviegoers did, when they were young.

Actors from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s called them girls, dames, broads, birds, baby, sister, little number, the skirt, the honey, the treat, coquettes, flappers, vamps, vixens, waifs, bombshells, and even fire-cracker, but they were one thing overall: drop-dead adorable and sexy.
