Happy Birthday (Times Two)!

Just wanted to dedicate a little space to extend birthday felicitations to two leading ladies of the silver screen, who ironically enough, shared the screen in the classic films, Father of the Bride and Father’s Little Dividend.


First, there was …

The Mother of the Bride (Joan Bennett)


Ms. Bennett is unfortunately not well renowned for her work nowadays by large swaths of movie lovers, but in her time she sure did leave a mark – for my money at least – in some great classic film noirs. One that I particular liked was Woman in the Window, having previously written about the film on my blog.


… and there is the Bride herself (Dame Elizabeth Taylor), who I have also covered on this site on the sad occasion of her passing a couple of years ago. She is also personal favorite of my Mom, who singled out her performance in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof as one of her all-time favorites (Mom has taste).



What are some of your favorite films featuring one (or both) of these actresses?  Share your picks below


  1. Happy Belated Birthday to two gorgeous ladies!! I was actually looking at a ton of photos of Liz Taylor the past couple of days, what a beauty she was. I put her dress in A Place in the Sun as one of my five personal favorites from Edith Head’s collection. Liz’s womanly figure is just astonishing.
