In memoriam

Dont get over excited, this is just a very brief posting, more tomorrow, as per normal schedule

But under the circumstances, I have to mention this

Died today (June 7th) in 1937, Harlean Harlow Carpenter, more famously known as Jean Harlow, of course.

Kidney failure, fatal back then, 10 years later, she may well have survived, as early dialysis machines came into existence. But back then…

Just one thing, the stories about her Mother causing her death, by her religious beliefs, not true! Stories started by MGM, as her mother trusted the nurses she’d found far more than any of Goldwyn’s! Unless he planned to time travel her forward about 10 years at least lol!

Someone posted this picture on Twitter today, that I found, rather nice
