Nice @Simone De Beauvoir, though I see Jim Morrison hitting on Joan of Arc and having them disappear into the bushes.

Michael Phelps, Mark Spitz, and Alexander Vladimirov Popov…all Olympic swimming medal award winners just for a bit of competitive entertainment. Rosanne Barr and Joan Rivers because they would be hilariously overly critical and would not be considered competition for my SO’s visual attention.

Molly Brown (rags to riches via gold mine, and Titanic survivor)
John Lennon (poverty to rock Superstar)
Mahatma Gandhi (poverty to, well, poverty, but also spiritial leader and pacifist)
Groucho Marx (poverty to legendary comic)
Charles Chaplin (extreme poverty to riches)

Chaplin met both Groucho and Gandhi. I would have loved to hear their discussions.

Greg Louganis for 1 meter board entertainment.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience for poolside tunes.

Sacagawea: she was an amazing Shoshone woman who I think rescued one of the Lewis & Clark expedition members from drowning.
She deserved to live a lot longer than she did.
Also, I think Jimi would have dug her.

@Brian1946 You know the quip. “Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did – backwards and in high heels.”?

Sacagawea did everything Lewis and Clarke did. Plus she was either pregnant or carrying a baby. Amazing woman.

Since his name is so frequently used at pool parties, perhaps one someone should invite the poor guy. ;-)
Maybe I could cancel Mitch Mitchell’s invitation and let Marco try the drums.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

@janbb: At my pool party though, everyone would jump in and then tread water as long as they could until exhaustion and then buddy up to keep afloat. Teamwork!

Nially_Bob's avatar

Mahatma Gandhi, Winston Churchill, Thomas Jefferson, Voltaire and Mark Twain.

Deja_vu's avatar

Alexander the Great, Toulouse Lautrec, Oscar Wilde, Cleopatra and William Shakespeare. ( I hope someone brings Absinthe)

Who’s Johnny? She said & smiled in that special way! He could act as M.C! The only other “guest” i’d invite would be her!! Don’t want or need anyone else. Yes I know she isn’t exactly what you’d call a historical figure, but hey, that figure is biblical in proportions!! :¬)
