Screen Gem Saturdays: Ann-Margret
Born Ann-Margret Olsson, she has always been a have of mine. With the perfect combination of innocence and sexuality, Ann-Margret can also back up her looks with a ton-o-talent. Her role in the 1963 film "Bye Bye Birdie" launched her career, which has included a few Oscar nominations along the way.
One of my favorite Ann-Margret movies is the made-for-TV drama "The Two Mrs. Grenvilles," based on a novel by Dominick Dunne.
Pitting her against veteran actress Claudette Colbert, Ann-Margret more than held her own as the showgirl who just doesn't quite fit into New York Society.
And on top of all that, Men's Health Magazine voted her #28 in the top 100 Hottest Women of All Time. Who could argue with that? Although I have to wonder how Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, and Britney Spears placed ahead of her.
Meanwhile, the world's sexiest sow is about to hit Blu-ray/DVD:
Here are a few more clips from "The Muppets," which is being released on March 20th.
