In reply to: Russ 's message, "I always wondered why in movies from the 40's thru 60's why older men were paired with much younger romantic leads, like Gary Cooper who was 28 years older than Roberta Haynes in "Return to Paradise". Seems Cary Grant was many movies like this." on Sunday, April 07, 05:24:58am

Starting in the 1950s, the trend was throwing in ingénue 'catch of the day' Audrey Hepburn (who was in her 20s) casting her w/much older Gary Cooper 56 ("Love In The Afternoon"), Humphrey Bogart 55 ("Sabrina"), Fred Astaire 58 ("Funny Face"), Rex Harrison 56 ("My Fair Lady"), and Cary Grant 59 ("Charade") as her leading men! (NT)Finally casting gap closed with Burt Lancaster, 47 ("The Unforgiven"), and lastly w/William Holden 46, ("Paris When It Sizzles") in the early 1960s.Sunday, April 07, 10:04:40am
