Ann Sheridan and Ronald Reagan
If you know anything about me, you know that Ann Sheridan is one of my top 3 favorite actresses: Maureen O’Hara, Lucille Ball, and Ann Sheridan all tie for the top spot – and, no, I’m not sure what it is with me and redheads but, my top ten favorites also include Rita Hayworth and Ann-Margret, so there must be something about their style that draws me in!
While I literally love all of Ann Sheridan’s movies, King’s Row (1942, directed by Sam Wood) is one of my favorites. The chemistry between her and Ronald Reagan and the story, itself, are extraordinary. The cast is also pretty darn hard to beat – Robert Cummings, Claude Rains, Charles Coburn, Nancy Coleman, Betty Field, Judith Anderson, and Maria Ouspenskaya.
Not bad for a cast with only one redhead! Kidding, kidding…
