To the DL Cinema Queens:

Who were the top 5 female and top 5 male stars of the Golden Age (let's say 1930-1959)?

Beauty, talent, box office, lasting influence should all factor into your list.

The Quigley box office poll would show that the top male and top female stars during that period were, respectively, probably Shirley Temple and John Wayne, if you averaged out people's appearances at the top of those polls over that time period. Followed closely by Marie Dressler and Bing Crosby. If you extended the time period to 1964, you'd add Rock Hudson and Doris Day.

As for my favorites:

Bette Davis/Jimmy Cagney

Ingrid Bergman/Cary Grant

Hattie McDaniel/Allen Jenkins
