The Beauty of Merle Oberon
|Merle Oberon, 1911 to 1979|
I was watching the 1939 version of Wuthering Heights the other day, the one with Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon, and thought, man, she has to be one of the most beautiful actresses in the history of cinema. It's interesting to compare ideals of beauty from 75 years ago with today's ideals. I think I prefer the older version. This might make me either an anachronism or a person of exceptional taste, or both.
