Lilian Roth

  1. Jean Harlow, Red-Headed Woman, 1931.     A major star is born…  The blonde Harlow beat off eager competition from Bow, Joan Crawford, Lilian Roth (prepared to leave her Broadwaay show for the movie), Barbra Stanwyck – even Greta Garbo! MGM’s Marie Dressler shot some gag pin-ups in a red wig.  King Geoprge V preferred his VIP copy of what Hollywood Reportert called “the sexiest performance since Clara Bow discovered It.” nHM has better luck than his subjects as the film was first banned in the UK.  Oh, it’s good to be a king.
