Dinner party

One of the most popular questions among classic movie buffs is ‘If you could have ten people for dinner, who would you pick?’ It’s a heart wrenching question as well, ’cause we love them all and we want to meet them all and be best friends and have pillow fights and all that. And for some reason, it’s always 10. Well, I’m going to pick 15! *GASP* yes, that’s right. I just couldn’t leave some of these out. So, here are the 15 people from Hollywood’s Golden Age I would invite to a dinner party.

  • Katharine Hepburn
  • Cary Grant
  • Bette Davis
  • Tallulah Bankhead
  • Spencer Tracy
  • Lauren Bacall
  • Humphrey Bogart
  • Carole Lombard
  • Jack Lemmon
  • Billy Wilder
  • Alfred Hitchcock
  • Ingrid Bergman
  • Barbara Stanwyck
  • Jimmy Stewart

Honorable mention to Eve Arden, William Powell, Myrna Loy, Judy Garland and Marlon Brando. SEE??? Impossible.

    Omg you didn’t invite Joan Crawford, Marlene and Greta.
    Greta would surely be at a corner eating alone 😛
    Tallulah would be the heart of the party. Dinner. Sorry lol

        Yeah, I like Deborah but in an understated way. I don’t ever talk about it
        I ‘discovered’ Olivia more recently and since the sisters didn’t get along that well it would probably liven things up a little ^_^

        So I was talking about this to my parents at the dinner table and I asked my mum how would her list be like and my dad was also chiming in with suggestion. In conclusion, I’m felling bummed that I forgot Gene Kelly 😛
