  1. Thank you so much for this list--I am a big Norma Shearer fan! So far I've seen 7 on the list and like you hope to see them all! She's amazing!!!

  2. You can't finish Romeo and Juliet?? I just watched it a couple of nights ago for the third time this year. :)


    I've only seen four of these Norma Shearer films.

    I like how you keep track of how many films you've seen of each of your favorite actresses...I've been meaning to do something similiar for my favorite men. I think Jimmy Stewart would probably be the winner.

  3. Bonnie - Isn't she? There is something so captivating about watching her on screen.

    Ginger - It's easier to keep track if the actor or actress had a short career or did a limited number of movies.

    I have to say, Norma doesn't quite do as well in the period pieces. She's too over the top. And I don't buy her as a 14 year old Juliet! She's more in her element playing a contemporary character for her time.


Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
