Kim Novak, Not
But some have said that Kim and other women had "no choice." So I give you one of the most--if not most--beautiful women in the history of Hollywood, Eva Marie Saint.
No, she wouldn't make most lists, but then some of us prefer casual rather than over-the-top beauty. And nothing tops Eva in "On the Waterfront," and then in a more sleek role in "North By Northwest." Still quite alive (she recently did a cameo in a movie), she appeared on CBS two days ago and talked about how she never "went Hollywood" and never (she says) got any work done. And still gorgeous.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: email@example.com. Twitter: @GregMitch
