Always a more demure star than the mysterious, slightly dangerous, Ms. Dietrich, Irene Dunne nonetheless could also turn on the dazzle upon occasion.
Veronica Lake shimmers in a more low-key way in this shot. (Is it me or does the fabric around her upraised hand make it look like she is flipping all of us off?! lol)

Doris Day is sporting a still-impressive physique in this publicity photo from 1966's The Glass Bottom Boat. She was forty-two at the time (and gals didn't typically stay in this kind of shape at that age in those days.)
