Peter,

Thank you for adding:
Lt. Ann Girard (Betsy Palmer) in Mister Roberts (1955)
Ensign Nellie Forbush, USN (Mitzi Gaynor) in South Pacific (1958)

It's a shame that Sister Kenny (1946) only has 886 votes.

Peter,

By the way, you need to add the name, Lt. Ann Girard, to number 13.

I think a lot of people don't actually read the question; they just vote for one of the most well-known characters.

I bet if someone made a poll "Who would be your ideal housemate" and included Heath Ledger's Joker; he would get the most votes.

Talia, that would've been hilarious... And a very Joker-like moment. :)
