Happy Birthday

Geena delivered a terrific performance in a film with so much heart. Well done!

Best. Movie. Ever.

Coincidentally, I was thinking about my favorite, Thelma & Louise, the other day. I marvel at how Geena Davis, a native of Massachusetts I believe, could do such a spot-on southern accent, and not drop it...ever. Even with the best actresses, there is inevitably an accent drop out on a word somewhere. I always wanted to thank her for her wonderful, real performance. :)

I'm a big fan of anything Geena does! From Thelma, Beetlejuice and Long Kiss, Dottie, and of course Earth girls are Easy! Geena is such an inspirational role model - with beauty, smarts and strength. Growing up in the 80's Geena was the actress that let me know tall and strong was beautiful! Happy Birthday!

Thelma will ALWAYS be my favorite, her arc was so thorough and deep, I loved every minute of her coming out of her shell. Such a timeless and inimitable film. <3 HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEENA!

Thelma. Hands down. ❤️❤️❤️

Dottie Hinson and of course my fav movie ever - “A league of their own”. I saw this film more than 200 times 🙂

The long kiss good night!! My mom and my favorite movie. We make a point of watching it together, and have watched it while on the phone long distance when we hadnt been able to be together.

It’s a toss up between Thelma and Dottie and they are at total opposite ends of the spectrum. Both movies had a profound impact on me while in film school. I still have a framed sheet of paper that reads “You get what you settle for.”

My sister and I have always liked Morgan Adams. Cutthroat Island is one of our favorite pirate movies. Other than Maureen O’Hara there weren’t that many female pirate captains.

Dottie. I have seen A League of Their Own more times than I can count and it’s always an inspiration. ❤️

Only just watched this a couple of weeks ago - it was brilliant!

Thelma in Thelma&Louise

Tie: Charly Baltimore and Muriel Pritchett. Each absolutely fantastic in her own way.

Dottie Hinson!

Dottie, 100%.

Thelma and Louise is probably my favourite movie! So, Thelma.

Another for Samantha Cain / Charly in The Long Kiss Goodnight.... the movie that deserved far more ticket sales. Similar to the recent Atomic Blonde with Charlize Theron.

Charlie Baltimore, Long Kiss Goodnight, my fave!!!!

Thelma and Charlie Baltimore .- Hihi, and funny in Tootsie when I go. "Hey that's Geena!"

Thelma...watched this movie at least 30 times..love it!!!!!

Obviously Thelma...but also Janet Adler, Angela Rance (The Exorcist), Veronica (The Fly), &: https://youtu.be/XoigjH-tEYY.

Charly Baltimore!

Earth girls are easy

Dottie! Hands down.
