There is a meme going around the best film blogs but since no-one is likely to tag me I'm just going to produce my own list of my twenty favourite actresses.

My first criterion is that the majority of the films made by the actresses are in English since I am not likely to have seen more than two or three of their films if they mainly star(red) in foreign language films. My second criterion follows from this and is that I must have seen more than four or more films with the actress in question. My third criterion is that I have to have watched any old nonsense in order to follow these actresses (examples of these in brackets)

In alphabetical order:

    Jean Arthur (If You Could Only Cook)
    Ingrid Bergman (The Yellow Rolls-Royce)
    Claudette Colbert (Without Reservations)
    Bette Davis (The Watcher in the Woods)

    Olivia de Havilland (Airport '77)
