Lowest Rated: 33% Two-Faced Woman (1941)

Birthday: Oct 22, 1904

Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

One of a trio of sisters who first brightened movie screens during the tail end of the silent era, Constance Bennett was considered to be the most beautiful of the Bennett siblings. The eldest of the girls, Constance was followed by Barbara, who had the shortest career, and Joan, who was the most successful, but she was the first to really make her mark in Hollywood. She easily made the transition to talkies and quickly became a popular star in features for MGM, Warner Bros. and RKO, notably "What Price Hollywood?" (1932) and "Bed of Roses" (1933). Bennett was an able comedienne and skilled at the dramatic plotlines she was assigned. Additionally, she was simply stunning to look at with her trademark slim figure and eye-catching blonde pageboy. The New York City native was also a tough negotiator who refused to be pushed around by the men in her life. "Topper" (1937) and "Two-Faced Woman" (1941) provided enjoyable showcases for her comic talents, but by the time the latter hit theaters, Bennett's career was starting to decline and it eventually took a backseat to other pursuits in her life. Although sibling Joan ultimately had the longer and brighter career, Constance Bennett made the most of her time in the upper echelon of Hollywood and still impressed viewers decades later with her seemingly effortless beauty and sophistication.
