People I would love to have over for dinner

Cary Grant
He exudes charm, sophistication...suave on a stick. Comic, romeo, jester, debonair...calm under pressure, old world handsome, twinkle in his eye...and what a voice. If only Cary Grant was the model with which all young men were raised in this chaotic, crazy, crude, insatiable generation.
2
Grace Kelly
Why not? Who wouldn't want to dine with Grace Kelly?
3
Doris Day
Absolutely the most darling woman on earth. I grew up watching Doris Day's sunshiney personality perk up the screen of our little television set. This woman can handle everything...trickery from Rock Hudson, stalking from Tony Randall, controlling male chauvinism from adorable James Garner, and she can sing like a canary. I find her absolutely adorable, and have delighted in some lovely pen pal exchanged letters with her. Sheer delight.
4
Jimmy Stewart
Every man should be as sweet as this fellow. Humble, sincere, that gravelly voice...!
5
Jane Fonda
Cute, outspoken, talented, with a load of fascinating stories to share between courses. Plucky, controversial, from Hollywood legacy, really outspoken and a spit fire.
6
Hugh Grant
Too cute for words. That silly foppish hair.
7
Catherine Deneuve
Smokey, steamy, say it like it is. Every dinner party would be better to have a French diva of her caliber around like Ms Deneuve to keep things lively.
8
George Cukor
George Cukor, what a world he whipped up behind the camera. This fellow would have some incredible stories to share.

What did you think of this list?

Love this list!  Nothing like a bit of old Hollywood at the table :)  I'd love to hear a bit about why'd you have these folks over for dinner!  I don't know if you've seen @Sharrie's list of VIPs I'd like to have on my guest list, but you should check it out.  I think you'd really like it!  Thanks for sharing, Melissa :)

hiya devora, so exciting, you're my first reply. just fell over a Lunch reference online and thought i'd sign up and give it a try. So you inspired me to explain why I've invited this fab group over for dinner...I really do love old Hollywood. New Hollywood is ok...but there is a class of character that came before that i still admire for so many reasons. I looked at Sharrie's list of VIP's...fascinating assemblage. Who knows what alternate reality exists in the great 'beyond'...wouldn't it be terrific to actually meet all of these people who have gone before...?

Oh, very cool, we're glad to have you, Melissa.  Welcome!  By the way, I love your update to this list :)  I'd really love to dine with Grace Kelly, too.  Now that is one classy woman!  Another one would be Audrey Hepburn.  Now you're making me think of who I'd like to dine with... maybe I should just make a list of my own!  Thanks for inspiring :)
