Honoring the original “Platinum Blonde.”

Tomorrow marks the start of the Jean Harlow Blogathon, hosted by the Kitty Packard Pictorial! We are so excited to be participating in this event to celebrate the centenary of one of the most gorgeous, talented, and truly funny actresses to ever come out of Hollywood.

Harlow’s birthday is Thursday, March 3rd, and we will be posting our tribute the day before. Brandie will be taking a look at 1937’s seminal screwball classic Libeled Lady–one of Harlow’s best comedic performances.

If you’ll be in the Los Angeles area, you can join in the festivities at the Hollywood Museum, which will be hosting a special exhibition of Harlow memorabilia from March 3rd through September 5th. You can even see her beloved 1932 Packard!

Also, just a reminder: the new book Harlow in Hollywood: The Blonde Bombshell in the Glamour Capital, 1928-1937, by Darrell Rooney and Mark A. Vieira, is being released on Tuesday, March 1st. You can win a copy–check out Kitty’s blog for details!

Some great bloggers are already lined up to write posts for the blogathon–make sure you get in on the fun and join us!
