Blogging for Baby: beginning of the Jean Harlow centennial week!

March 3, 2011 will mark the 100th birthday of one of the greatest screen icons and comediennes of all time; Jean Harlow. Harlean's Heyday, named after the actress, is extremely pleased to take part in the first ever Jean Harlow Blogathon this week! It means that all of this week my blog will be dedicated to Jean. I will be watching and reviewing her films, looking at her life and, of course, discussing Jean as a vintage fashion icon. The Kitty Packard Pictorial is bringing together all of the bloggers who will be writing about a vast array of topics in honor of our beloved Baby's centennial. Looks to be a truly swell and fascinating line-up so be sure to keep your eyes peeled at The Kitty Packard Pictorial to stay updated on all of the exciting happenings!

Jean's life and legend is celebrated in a new book by collector Darrell Rooney and Hollywood historian Mark A. Vieira, titled Harlow in Hollywood: The Blonde Bombshell in the Glamour Capital, 1928-1937. The book, which releases March 1, seems to be a true must-have for all the fans. It is stacked with rare and previously unpublished photos and prides to feature accurate information on Jean, the places where she lived and worked, and 1930s Hollywood itself. It has been a while since I've been this excited about an upcoming book release - I truly cannot wait to get my hands on this one! Click here to further details on Harlow in Hollywood.


  1. oh, awesome!!!!! hurrah for harlow week!

  2. I eagerly await your entry (or entries) on Harlow. Hope you caught mine today, where I create an alternate universe where Jean and good friend Carole Lombard "switch" film careers (and had a few things turned out differently, something like this might well have happened):

  3. I am really looking forward to this book. Glad to find yet another awesome run-by-Riikka site ;)
