The young blonde woman looks to me like Juliette Lewis. I got nothin' on the brunette.

Which now has me free-associating Groucho Marx:

"You take the blonde and I'll take the one in the turban!"

Man, I'm weird.

Not Juliette Lewis. The movie’s older than this screenshot might suggest. (Tricky.)

Anne Francis as Flamingo McManamee and Barbara Hale as Verity Wade in A Lion in the Streets (dir. Raoul Walsh, 1953).

I knew both but didn't have computer access in time.

Ann Francis played Honey West, a detective whose pet cat was an ocelot. Barbara Hale was Perry Mason's secretary/gal-friday legal assistant, amateur-but-natural-sleuth and Paul Drake's eye-candy.

I might have guessed Francis (I know her best from The Blackboard Jungle and Route 66), but I don’t think I’d have guessed Hale. So I’m impressed. :)

I thought someone would have guessed Susan Sarandon for Hale. Strong resemblance, no?

I knew the blonde was Ann Francis but not Barbara Hale. That's a good one.

Michael Leddy said...

Good eyes on the Anne Francis.

I got Ann Francis but thought the other was Sigourney Weaver but the timing didn't add up. Love that it's Barbara Hale.

The wet hair works like a time machine, doesn’t it?
