20 Favorite Actresses

There's a meme going around where bloggers are supposed to name their 20 favorite actresses.  I decided to use the TV test - If I'm flipping stations and I catch a glimpse of an actress, do I stop to watch the movie?

In no particular order they are:

  • Deborah Kerr
  • Katherine Hepburn
  • Judy Garland
  • Audrey Hepburn
  • Ingrid Bergman
  • Jessica Lange
  • Meryl Streep
  • Judi Dench
  • Maggie Smith
  • Myrna Loy
  • Helen Mirren
  • Peggy Ashcroft
  • Emma Thompson
  • Judy Holiday
  • Doris Day
  • Grace Kelly
  • Vivien Leigh
  • Katherine Grayson
