    This is waaaaaay tougher for me than i expected it would be! The Warner star is Olivia de Havilland, I think she’s the 4th one down? I also see Marlene Dietrich (#3), Rita Hayworth? (#6), Hedy Lamarr (#8). I think #1 is Lucille Ball,and #5 is Betty Grable? No clue on the others.

          Very good guesses, Bob, but those eyes apparently didn’t have it for Erro who went instead for other top ten orbs.

      Not Ann Dvorak, Paula, but your halfway there! … Errol used to date her, co-starred with her, and once attended a Very big and happy wedding with her once, a wedding that can be watched on YouTube.

      Eye Eye Captain Heinz. (That’s an optical allusion.)

      PG Rated a No. 4, and LT a 10, and not just for her baby blues I’m sure!

      So, let’s see, here’s where we are – 14 down, 6 to go.

      “Leave it to Errol Flynn to add a little zest to the selection of the ten loveliest pair of eyes in Hollywood. According to the Warner Brothers publicity department, Flynn picks the orbs of: Lucille Ball, ____ ________, Marlene Dietrich, Paulette Goddard,, Betty Grable, Rita Hayworth, _______ ______, ____ ______, Hedy Lamarr, and Lana Turner.
