Crawford, Stanwyck, and Gish are all favorites of mine as well. ;)

You have excellent taste and, if I may say, sound judgement -- you've put the correct person first! Posted Image

LOL - Yes! My first A on a quiz in many years.

There are so many others to mention from over the years: Katherine Hepburn (and Audrey), Deborah Kerr, Wendy Hiller...

I picked up the best cookbook (more like a pamphlet, actually) from 1933 on e-Bay -- Betty Crocker's 101 Delicious Bisquick Creations As Made and Served by Well-Known Gracious Hostesses; Famous Chefs; Distinguished Epicures and Smart Luminaries of Movieland. Recipes include Mary Pickford's Strawberry Shortcake, Claudette Colbert's Peach Shortcake and Gloria Swanson's Cheese Bisquicks. I would like to know why Joan Crawford wasn't included, though. I'll bet Norma "screwing the boss" Shearer was behind this injustice!

In any event, this well-know gracious hostess enjoyed reading through these recipes from nearly 80 years ago.
