Stars Young People Should Know

I mentioned Spencer Tracy to a young manager several years ago and got a blank look.

Tracy was a mega-star but here are some other stars that should be better known by the young:
  • Louis Calhern
  • Myrna Loy
  • Claude Rains
  • Greta Garbo
  • Joseph Cotten
  • Veronica Lake
  • Sam Jaffe
  • Fred MacMurray
  • Wallace Beery
  • Joel McCrea
  • Sidney Greenstreet
  • James Whitmore
  • Charles Laughton

Can we have Myrna Loy without William Powell? (And surely you meant to include Diana Rigg). S

I'm glad you mentioned those. Gross oversights on my part.

I will write a note of apology to The Rigg.
