Have you wondered what would happen if you put two movie characters into a ring and let them fight it out? Who would win? Here are some of my choices for some good fights and who I think would be victorious:
Crystal Allen (The Women) vs. Lillian "Lil" Legendre (Red-Headed Woman)
In this battle of the home-wrecking gold diggers, Miss Allen would put up a pretty great battle. However, Lil's feistiness and flirtation would deliver a one-two punch, ending the fight...until the two are backstage.
Regina Giddens (The Little Foxes) vs. Joan Crawford (Mommie Dearest)
Crazy Mom vs. Crazy Mom. They are both a bit unstable and don't follow the rules so this could be an interesting one. I'll give this one to Mommie Dearest unless Mrs. Giddens pulls out a wire hanger, then I'd give her the win.
Phyllis Dietrichson (Double Indemnity) vs. Cora Smith (The Postman Always Rings Twice)
Murderous wives anyone?? They would probably come up with a strategy to win but would make their unsuspecting lovers do the dirty work. So, it's pretty much Fred MacMurray vs. John Garfield now. My money is on MacMurray, Phyllis would go nuts if he lost.
Gregory Anton (Gaslight) vs. Johnnie (Suspicion)
These two make marriage exciting....or frightening...take your pick. Johnnie would probably win by giving good old Greg a glowing glass of milk (wow...that's a tongue twister) unless they drive each other insane first. I declare that the winner of this fight is....paranoia.
Bonnie and Clyde (Bonnie and Clyde) vs. Annie and Bart (Gun Crazy)
This fight would be a real shootout. I think it would come down to who's got the fastest guns. In that case, Annie and Bart would win. Have you seen the sharpshooting scene? Those two can't miss!
Norma Desmond (Sunset Blvd.) vs. Mrs. Danvers (Rebecca)
Why would I put these two in the ring together? Because I have never seen two people master the art of the crazy face as well as these two, plus they are both living in the past. I don't think I can really call a winner on this one. Who do you think would win?
Let me know who you think would win these fights. Are there any other characters that need to duke it out?
