Golden Goldies

No Hollywood actress in recent memory has come closer than Goldie Hawn to capturing the ebullience and whip-smart comic timing of the great screen comediennes of the ’30s and ’40s, a modern Joan Blondell or Carole Lombard. Though she won an Academy Award for one of her first roles (in 1969’s Cactus Flower), critics have tended to underestimate the depths of her talent. The new film Snatched marks her long-awaited return to the screen after a 15-year absence, and we’re celebrating the occasion with a greatest-hits retrospective, a veritable masterclass in the delicate art of cinematic comedy.
