  1. Dawn,
    I really like Jean Harlow. She and Gable were such great buddies. I never thought of her as a real beauty, but you can't take your eyes off of her in a film. I am looking forward to watching some of her on TCM.

  2. Ooh, don't miss Three Wise Girls. That's a good one!

  3. Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl, What a personality Jean Harlow had. I was able to watch the film, The Red Headed Woman and part of, Three Wise Girls.

    Tom, I really wanted to watch the film, Three Wise Girls.. but I fell asleep. :(

  4. I saw Three Wise Girls last night and I agree Tom, it was very good. I'm sure they will play it again Robin.
