MovieMaidens.com is dedicated to the most beautiful classic actresses during the first 75 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 with enormous eyebrows and clown-like lipstick, Bette Davis as a shaky old woman with a cigarette, Elizabeth Taylor at 220 pounds, or any aging actress after too many plastic surgeries?

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.
