    As most classical movie fans will know, actresses Marilyn Monroe, Mamie Van Doren, and Jayne Mansfield were known collectively as "The Three M's" during their heyday. Each personified some form of the blonde stereotype; a shapely figure, soft voice, and (sometimes) a perceived lack of intelligence.

    Among these three ladies, whom would be your favorite?

    Van Doren was always an also-ran, even in the '50s -- she opened a lot of shopping centers.

    It seems that Van Doren and Mansfield have always been considered second-class when it came to Monroe, and indeed they were. Mansfield, while certainly not to the permanent A-list caliber, she was more of what I would define as a mainstream star than Van Doren, who always seemed to belong to the B-movie bad girl niche.

    She was not one of "The Three M's", so that's why I didn't include her.
