In the 1989 classic When Harry Met Sally, Billy Crystal's Harry Burns laid in his bed watching Casablanca and speaking into the phone. During the famous final scene, he informed a confused Sally Albright on the other end that Ingrid Bergman was "low maintenance." He then went on to call poor Sally "high maintenance" and criticize her difficult nature and demanding personality. Audiences - at least the men - likely disagreed as the movie has been one of the most watched romantic comedies in history and one of the main reasons was the loveable, sweet, beautiful Sally.
American males love to see scantily clad women parade on screen. There is really no other reason some low budget horror and prison movies got produced. But secretly, many men long for the All-American, soft-eyed sweetheart who melts their crusty exterior while still nudging their libido with her innocence and vulnerability. Note that we are not necessarily commenting on the actresses themselves. But naturally a gorgeous character will be played by a gorgeous actress. In addition, we'll be sticking to somewhat recent films. It tends to be difficult to pick out the qualities we're looking for in black and white, melodramatic pre-war movies. Here are 15 fictitious blushing beauties who you'd be proud to invite to dinner with the parents.

1 Joyce Palmieri - Kindergarten Cop, 1990
What more can you ask for? Soft eyes, electric smile, long, shapely legs, and a tender, welcoming demeanour. All that and apparently she has a fetish for hulking Kindergarten teachers who speak broken English. Yes, you have to ignore the homicidal ex-husband who is stalking her and her son but we can't be picking nits here. Penelope Ann Miller has played a diverse array of roles in her career but she was born for this one. Joyce starts off as Arnold's only friend in the school and soon charms the crusty cop facade right off of him. In the span of several weeks, he morphs from a tough narcotics officer into a tender school teacher. So it also doesn't hurt that she's gullible as all get out. So what if her situation almost gets him and her son killed? Man up, Schwarzenegger. She's still as delicate and delicious a character as you'll find in film.
