Actresses with Class

Hillary Swank at the Oscars impressed writer and academy member Roger Simon.

"Swank is fascinating person. I think she will be moving us in films for decades to come. She has really got it. [She] reminds me of some of the great actresses of the forties. It's not about looks."

Right. Remember this lady?
