1955 in Picnic
I was just totally taken with Susan Strasberg's performance as kid sister Millie Owens in the 1955 William Holden movie Picnic. My best reckoning is that she was 16 at time of filming.
In the movie, she's the tomboy kid sister playing second fiddle to Kim Novak as Madge. "Madge is the pretty one." But little Millie with her dirty novels and sneaked cigarettes and big plans really does it for me. I'd rather have a date with Millie.
Kim Novak is a legendary Hollywood beauty and all that, so I might would be in a minority to say that I'd taken Miss Strasberg for first choice. A lot of the appeal is the character of Millie, but even considering the actresses as physical specimens, I'd take Susan Strasberg head to head with even Kim Novak. She sure was cute - and a good actress.
