12 Classic Film Stars and Their Pets

All the great actors, actresses and directors from the Hollywood Golden Age, from the Classical movie era, aren’t just legends, myths and more because of what happened on screen. They had a love for dogs, cats and even monkeys, which should be glorified and appreciated.

Alfred Hitchcock and his Dog

Alfred Hitchcock passed away on 1980 at the age of 81, and is considered by some to be the most influential director in the history of cinema, with countless movies that have gone into cinematic lore and myth.

Humphrey Bogart

Bogart was named as the greatest American male star in the history of American cinema by the AFI.

Audrey Hepburn

A fashion icon just as much as she was a movie star, Hepburn is one of the few people to win an Academy, Emmy, Grammy and Tony award.

Anthony Perkins

Physco. Norman Bates. ‘Nough said.

Buster Keaton With a Monkey

But Buster Keaton Loved Dogs Too

Sophia Loren

Still showing up here and there, closing in on the big 8-0.

Shirley Temple

Not just an alcoholic drink, for those who don’t remember. The biggest child actress of them all.

Lawrence Olivier

Maybe the greatest Shakespearean actor of them all.

Jimmy Stewart

Stewart read a poem about his dog on the Carson show in 1981.

Lauren Bacall

One of the few Golden Age stars that are still around to tell people about the good ol’ days.

Carey Grant

I guess it used to be very popular, carrying your dog around in your pocket.
