Poll suggestion: Which Chanteuse Who Acted In Films Has The Most Respect

Remember that these are women who are first and foremost known as singers before they acted in a movie. It also helped if they sang in nightclubs and caberets.
The list is at http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069875320/...

To Peter who merged the topics together. It is indeed the same topic. I just kept on getting the red bar of death saying that I didn't have access to the page that made me think I was ether banned from this site or that my poll suggestion wasn't posted. That you Peter.

not fair...not fair...not fair...

the way the question is worded..."which one has the most respect"...that throws a curve in choosing, rather than simply 'who is your favorite' (which is what most people will pick anyway)...

but since i actually pay attention to the question, when it comes to r-e-s-p-e-c-t, who else would you think of but aretha...

but then there's tina turner in 'thunderdome'...i love tina....and bette midler, who in her early days, kicked out a storm with the best of them...

but looking over the list, when i think of 'respect', i would say the greatest 'respect' would have to go to rosemary clooney, simply because she was considered a premier jazz vocalist, along with being a wonderful actress...

i love polls that make you think...excellent excellent question...

Chanteuse makes me think of Edith Piaf. She was in some films.

Great suggestion! I don't know about respect, but my favorite is Whitney Houston :)

I find the question in the title slightly unanswerable.  Like rocky-o pointed out, I could tell you who I think deserves the most respect, but who actually has it is an empirical question that we don't have a way of answering (unless we undertake a research study, which would be fun!).  Perhaps you could provide voters with a basis, such as the awards they've won or the number of records they've sold?

Also, I don't know if that's gonna be the case once it's published, but your introductory texts are all cut in half followed by an unclickable ellipsis, so maybe that means you'll have to limit them to approximately five and a half lines.  

Oh and I'd uncapitalize the "The" and the "In" in the title, add a question mark to the end, and fix the description in order to increase the chances of getting picked.

DG,

The title should be:

Which Chanteuse Who Acted in Films Has the Most Respect?

Do honky-tonks count as night clubs?
Reba McEntire . She was in "Tremors", "One Night At McCool's", "North", the voice of Betsy the cow in "Charlotte's Web" , a spectator in "Maverick", and even though I'm not counting tv as qualifiers, her two tv series.
And even though she has more tv work than movies, she does have "Harlem Nights" and "Beauty Shop" to her credit, Della Reese.
Then there is Pearl Bailey
