[quote]Gina Lollobrigida is the poor man's Sophia Loren

eh, no. That's a stupid example.

Gina started WAY before Sophia became a star. When Gina starred in Beat the Devil with Humphrey Bogart in 1953, Gina had already made 27 films. In 1953, Sophia was still an unknown actress playing bit parts. Her first big film was Aida, with Sophia lip-synching to opera.

And Gina can sing AND dance.

While Sophia was an up and coming actress in 1954, Gina was mingling with Marilyn (see link).

So no Gina is not the poor man's Sophia Loren.

You do realize the phrase comes from an assessment of the level of success, popularity, etc. of an individual and his/her carbon copy or reasonable facsimile? It answers the question who do we get when we can't get so-and-so?

I.e., the facts. Not someone's opinion on who's more talented or deserving.

For instance, whether we like it or not, Christina Applegate is the poor man's Cameron Diaz, and Paul Rudd is the poor man's Ben Stiller - as much as it disgusts me to write both those things.

I remember at one point in 1980, when Heather Locklear was oh so clearly the poor man's Farrah Fawcett, after Farrah had decided that she was too big for TV (back in the day when people thought TV was way beneath films).

Things that were alleged in Hollywood in the 1930s. I don't get the Bankhead/Dietrich comparison, except maybe in outrageous (for the times) behavior.

Wow some of you really don't get this concept. "The Poor man's" version needs to be either contemporaries who are often mistaken for the other, could have been up for the same roles. OR people who are obviously mimicking or profiting off of someone else's look and style.

Here are the best listed so far. [italic] John Cougar Mellencamp is the poor man's Bruce Springerstein

They used to say that Joan Collins was the poor man's Elizabeth Taylor.

Jon Cryer is the poor man's Matthew Broderick.

Sandra Lee is the poor man's Martha Stewart.

Bill Paxton is the poor man's Bill Pullman

Steven Tyler is the poor man's Mick Jagger

Tom Selleck used to be a poor mans Burt Reynolds.

Dietrich was the poor man's Garbo

Bankhead was the poor man's Dietrich

Sandra Bullock is the poor man's julia Roberts [/italic]

I will also add ...

Timothy Dalton was the poor man's Pierce Bronson

Rip Torn is the poor man's Brian Cox

Brosnan. So, would Timothy Dalton have been any better in "Mamma Mia?"

Jodi Applegate was, for a time, the poor man's Katie Couric

Laura Ingraham is the poor man's Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter is the poor man's Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS

(OK, maybe r204 won't approve that last one)

by Anonymousreply 20612/03/2012

R204, well you don't seem to get it. How can Timothy Dalton be the poor's man Pierce Brosnan? That really boggles the mind.

Dalton was/is a stage actor and an experienced Shakesperian actor who has been making movies since the mid-60s and replaced Roger Moore as 007 in the 1980s.

Pierce was mainly known as a TV star when he started acting in the 1980s and never did Shakespeare and replaced Dalton as 007 in the 1990s.

They're not even up for the same roles. Dalton often plays villains not Brosnan.

r204, you need to get the concept before you chide everyone else.

In your best of list is Jon Cryer and Matthew Broderick. I don't consider those two as anywhere near each other. Broderick was sexy in a boyish mischevious way. Cryer plays the perpetual loser mold and is ugly as sin. Cryer is the modern day Don Knotts and Broderick is the modern day Mickey Rooney.
