Colleen Moore


  1. Jean Harlow, Red-Headed Woman, 1932.      MGM’s in house genius Irving Thalberg agreed with her agent Paul Bern: this was the breakthrough for Harlow.
  2. Karen Morley, Flesh, 1932.      Announced in August as Moore’s first movie for three years – Wallace Beery was to trade “his soul for a smile from her lying lips,” screamed the poster (Madge Evans was also considered). Moore’s talkie debut had to wait until The Power and the Glory, 1933. Married four times, and famous for an affair with director King Vidor in the 20s, Colleen discovered Gretchen Young and suggested her new name of Loretta.
