While this is the pivotal quote from the movie “Maltese Falcon,” this movie will not be mentioned further. The quote is germane as I am remembering various beautiful actresses in movie roles in which they looked most appealing, at least to me.
Michelle Pfeiffer in “The Fabulous Baker Boys” who is a favorite actress of mine
Nicole Kidman in “Cold Mountain” where she would take your breath away
Ingrid Bergman in “Casablanca” whose beautiful sadness made you pine for her
Isabella Rossellini in “Cousins” as she reminds me of how beautiful her mother was in “Casablanca”
Jean Seberg in “Paint your Wagon” who looked and sang better than her two husbands
Jane Seymour in “Somewhere in Time” for whom you would also want to travel back in time
Katherine Ross in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” especially during one of the most sensuous foreplay movie scenes
Teri Hatcher in “Tomorrow Never Dies” as my favorite Bond actress who I became infatuated with as Lois Lane on TV
Kathleen Turner in “Body Heat” where the verbal foreplay when she and William Hurt’s character first meet is scintillating – of course the other foreplay is memorable
Jacqueline Bissett in “The Deep” where the wet T-shirt contest may have been born and was very impactful on this teen boy
Jessica Lange in the remake of “The Postman Always Rings a Twice” where need and want become the same thing
Catherine McCormack in “Braveheart” where you mourn her loss as did William Wallace
I am leaving so many actresses out, so I would love to hear your favorites. Also, commenters are welcome to mention actors that float your boat.
