Kim Novak is an always fascinating and beautiful presence, she has to be in my top 5 actresses. Her first film role of notice was in Picnic (1955), a film she immediately set herself a reputation with. It goes without saying her most quintessential role was as Madeleine/Judy in Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958). A personal favorite of mine is Bell, Book and Candle (1958) where she was been teamed up again with Jimmy Stewart (albeit for a much more beneficial romance). Always a captivating screen presence, I wish her a happy birthday.
