Your 10 Best
A regular feature of the DHT is YOUR 10 BEST, and we encourage you to be a part of it. As promised, last week we shared with you the 10 Best (worst) villains of the ‘50s silver screen, and then the top “good guy” actors of the decade. Here are the 10 Best leading ladies to dominate the box office then. Enjoy!
She dominated the film decade like no other with Beau Brummell, Giant, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Last Time I Saw Paris, and culminated the period with an Oscar for Butterfield 8.


Liz taYLor

She dominated Hollywood longer than most actresses, still one of her most famous roles was in 1951’s African Queen opposite Bogart.

Katharine hepBurn


Belgian-born humanitarian, her “perfect” nose has always been a focal point. Sabrina and Roman Holiday were her decade’s best.

A very busy 1950s - Dial M for Murder, Rear Window, The Bridges at Toko Ri and Mogambo, she retired at 26 to marry Prince Ranier of Monaco.


Grace KeLLY

Bette davis
If Audrey Hepburn had the nose, Davis had the eyes. Played many villains as well but All About Eve and The Star were her decade’s best.


The Merry Widow, The Bad and the Beautiful, and A Life of Her Own, sadly the '50s marked the downward slide of her career.


Lana turner

MariLYn Monroe
Candle in the Wind, she was one of a kind. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Some Like it Hot, and this indelible shot from Seven Year Itch were highlights.

Pillow Talk, The Pajama Game, Que Sera Sera - what’s not to like?


nataLie Wood
Natalia Nikolaevna Zakharenko born to Russian immigrants was famous as a child actress (Miracle on 34th Street), but one of her best roles was opposite James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause.
