Cordy over at Any Merry Little Thought is hosting a delightful classic movie blog party ALL MONTH LONG! I'm hoping to contribute a post or two, but for right now, I'm going to fill out this charming little "would you rather" questionairre she posted here.
~Would you rather dance with Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly?~
Gene Kelly, no questions ask. He's a dear favorite of mine! I love his energy and vitality and cheerful smile. He always looks like dancing is fun, even when he's serious.
~Would you rather star opposite Cary Grant or Gregory Peck?~
Gregory Peck, for sure. I mean, I do enjoy a lot of Cary Grant movies, but... but... Gregory Peck.
~Would you rather be serenaded by Howard Keel or Bing Crosby?~
Der Bingle, please! His voice makes me think of melted chocolate.
~Would you rather share an airplane ride with Danny Kaye or Donald O'Connor?~
Ummmm. Neither of them would be flying the plane, right? If you just mean sit next to one of them on an airplane, then I'll say Danny Kaye. He's always struck me as sweet and intelligent and a bit melancholy beneath the silliness.
~What classic movie outfit would you steal?~ (No you cannot say all of them! ;))
I have ALWAYS wanted to wear this pink dress from White Christmas (1954).
~Would you rather be cast in a classic noir film or a classic western?~
A classic western. Though, could it be a noir-esque western like 3:10 to Yuma (1957)?
~Would you rather go on a shopping spree with Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly?~
Ouch. That is a REALLY hard choice. I love their styles so much! But I'll have to choose Audrey Hepburn because she has more functional perkiness to her look than Grace Kelly does, so I'd be more likely to wear things we shopped for together.
~Would you rather solve a mystery with William Powell or Myrna Loy?~
MYRNA LOY!!!!!!! I absolutely adore her -- she's one of my favorite actresses. She's always playing these sensible, sweet characters with a great sense of humor. Also, hey, it was her birthday earlier this month!
~Would you rather imitate Jimmy Stewart's voice in front of Jimmy Stewart, or imitate Maureen O'Hara's "temper" in front of Maureen O'Hara?~
Haha! I think both of those would be really fun. I choose Maureen O'Hara cuz she's my absolute favorite actress and she'd probably think it was quite funny if I imitated her, since I'd likely do it badly. Maybe I could do a rendition of her yelling at Jamie Boy in The Black Swan (1942) and threatening him with a pistol!
This was an excessively diverting game, Cordy! I can't wait to see what else people post for the Month of Classics Blog Party :-)
