Vintage Inspiration September 8th Joan Blondell

Caught Joan Blondell in a bunch of films on TCM this morning. She seems like such a sweetie, and has such a fun persona.
Some Joan Blondell Trivia:
  • Real name was Rose Joan Blondell
  • She was 5'3" tall, and her measurements were 37-21 1/2-36
  • Mike Todd, her third husband, went through all Joan's savings and then left her for Elizabeth Taylor. What a cad!
  • She has 208 credits to her name, with a career spanning from 1930 to 1981. Amazing!
  • Some of her more famous films include: Grease, Nightmare Alley, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Gold Diggers of 1937, Footlight Parade, Gold Diggers of 1933, and Topper Returns
