“Golden Actresses” of the Golden Age


There is a special charm in Hollywood films of the early and mid-twentieth century, when the “great silent" was replaced by talkies. The actresses of that time were the standard of beauty, femininity and style. They are still being imitated, fans are studying every photo that depicts film stars.

Mary Pickford.

Actress Mary Pickford stood at the very beginning of Hollywood, she shone in the tenth and twenties of the twentieth century. It was she who first demanded that film companies draw up serious legal contracts that would guarantee the main roles to the idol of the people. Pickford became famous as a film actress, without the help of theatrical productions and musicals. Her career lasted about 30 years, and Mary has 250 films in her piggy bank! The actress also starred in sound films, forcing a global restructuring of cinema.

Greta Garbo.

Greta grew up in the classical Swedish theater, and as a result became the "golden actress" of Hollywood. Her films were a staggering box office success, and critics praised Garbo to the skies. The actress was the first to hide her personal life from outsiders, giving herself a veil of mystery and mystery. Her screen image was also original, she preferred to express her feelings with great facial expressions and eyes, rather than words. And at the peak of her career, she suddenly left the world of cinema. After that, Greta lived in seclusion for a long life – almost fifty years.

Vivien Lee.

At the sound of the name Vivien Leigh, people first of all remember Scarlett O’Hara, because this image captured the actress in life. The courageous woman struggled unsuccessfully with a serious mental illness, trying not to show her torment in public. Vivienne brilliantly played her second great role – Blanche Dubois from the film "A Streetcar Named Desire", for which the actress received an Oscar.

Marlene Dietrich.

Marlene Dietrich first conquered Europe in the 20s, and then left to conquer Hollywood. She had her own opinion about German policy, so she did not agree to Goebbels’ proposal to stay in her homeland. Conventional norms meant nothing to Marlene, she wore men’s trousers when it was not yet accepted. Dietrich became a star in Hollywood as well.

Katharine Hepburn.

Record holder Katharine Hepburn received four Oscars for her acting career and was nominated for this award 12 times. Literally everyone adored her – the audience, critics, directors. The personal life of the actress was tragic. Her thirty-year romance with Spencer Tracy never ended in a wedding, the actor did not divorce his wife because of their deaf and mute child. When he fell ill and needed help, Catherine even interrupted her work and gave five years to her lover. Then the actress starred for another twenty years.

Bette Davis.

Hepburn’s rival Bette Davis gave Oscar his name, noting a clear resemblance to her uncle. She was also often nominated for various awards, sometimes she received them. Davis was trusted to work on complex psychological roles. She was not ashamed of her age and was full of life until her venerable years, as evidenced by her novels, hasty marriages and divorces.

Joan Crawford.

The actress remained in obscurity for a long time, although she began acting early. There was no real resounding success. Joan, not wanting to settle for less, began to advertise herself. She actively participated in social life, posed for professional photographers and did not refuse interviews with journalists. Crawford made herself into a star. Her expressive and deep timbre of voice helped her a lot when sound cinema appeared.

Jean Harlow.

The first Hollywood diva was the pretty blonde Jean Harlow, it was she who was given that name. The actress did not differ in angelic behavior and made friends with dubious personalities. But they did not help her career, but the millionaire Howard Hughes, who decided to make a sound remake of the silent Hells Angels, became Jean’s good fairy. The film became a real revolution in Hollywood, and Harlow’s star ascended along with it.

What if the purpose of the relationship is something unconditional for which both the man and the woman could take responsibility? What if this is… the practice of love? Love is what is within us; something for which we are responsible in both good and bad times. Love allows us to focus on our own efforts and responsibilities, as well as to notice the advantages of our partner. Too many people focus on taking something from the relationship. But, for a harmonious relationship, you need to give, take responsibility for your happiness, and then “invest” it in others.
