LARon, you're remembering Irene Pappas.


A soulful, dramatic, heroic beauty of Greek origin.

Another, exquisite woman from 'the past,' was GENE TIERNEY. She reminded me some, of Vivien Leigh. If you haven't seen LAURA, it's an engrossing mystery. Ms. Tierney's most famous film.

Gene Tierney was my father's neighbor many many years ago. We have a photo of her holding a baby (not hers) in one of our old family photo albums. It's signed too.

Ivan, did Irene Pappas have any other major roles? (From what I recall of seeing her in Zorba, she really had it going on! kind of like Monica Bellucci does today)

Hi LARon . . . believe it or not, Ms. Pappas, who ended up as a classical tragedienne, started working in her teens, as a singer / dancer, in variety shows! She got into films, during the early '50's. Ms. Pappas has played both leading and supporting roles in many international productions, and on stage. One of her flashier parts, after Zorba the Greek, was that of Catherine of Aragon, in ANNE OF THE THOUSAND DAYS, a costume epic about Henry VIII. Richard Burton, co-starred.

Thanks (boy, you really know your stuff. How happen you to be so knowledgeable about Ms. Pappas, and what tragedy ultimately befell her?)
post #487 of 656
Oh, movies are just my thing, I guess . . . older ones, anyway . . .

By tragedienne, I meant that Ms. Pappas tended to play depressive types, heroines who might often end up dead, or emotionally destroyed. Like that. High drama, Greek style.

And, thank you!

Well, in her case its not just "a bevy of pictures"; more like a bevy of boobies -- and that's just fine by me. Good gracious!!

Nina Persson of The Cardigans. I liked her better when she was blonde, especially during the Gran Turismo years.

You almost single handedly destroyed this thread with these two. Next time consider posting something like "WARNING BUSTED BISHES"
