"Any ladle's sweet that dishes out some gravy." ~Paulette Goddard as Miriam Aarons in 1939's THE WOMEN.
Paulette Goddard did pretty well for herself. We can see why she was a top star at Paramount in the 1940s. She was yummy. Goddard may not have had the acting range of a Barbara Stanwyck or an Olivia de Havilland, but what she did have sure was fun and great to look at.
Paulette Goddard had a ladle that definitely dished out some gravy.
To see her in one of her best Paramount roles thanks to sharp, mature Billy Wilder screenwriting and top direction from Mitchell Leisen, catch HOLD BACK THE DAWN. The drama co-stars Charles Boyer and Olivia de Havilland. It airs on TCM Monday night, August 29th, at 9:45p ET.
