      Actress Myrna Loy (1905-1993), 1932. For some reason this is what I imagine Holly looks like.

      ‘Beginning in movies as an extra in silent films, Myrna Loy (1905-1993) progressed from Oriental vamp to “perfect wife” and, along the way, proved herself a performer of unusual wit, grace and intelligence. Like Clark Gable, she commanded both the male and female audience; men saw her as the ideal mate and women wanted to be like her. With her unflappable poise and “dry-martini voice,” Loy achieved icon status with her portrayal of Nora Charles in the Thin Man movies.

That same year, fans voted her “Queen of the Movies” to Clark Gable’s “King.”’- TCM

    Though Katherine Hepburn was beautiful, her tomboyish figure differed from the curvaceous women (Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe) that were famous during that time. But through wit, charm, and a truly unique voice, Katherine set herself apart from the others.
