¡Feliz Cumpleaños, Joan Blondell!

AKA Rose Joan Blondell.

Born August 30, 1906. Died December 25, 1979.

She was one of my favorite actresses in the Busby Berkeley films and she was very memorable in a lot of films that were not made by Busby Berkeley. I am sorry her career was not more successful but at least she is still remembered -- even though most members of my generation probably know her more from her supporting role in the 1978 film Grease than from her starring roles in many an old movie.
