Clark was supposed to cry in the scene after the death of his daughter. It worried him for days before he was to do the scene as he’d never cried on the screen before. He didn’t think it was masculine for a man to cry. One day he confided in me, “Olivia, I can’t do it. I’m just going to have to quit.” I talked with him and convinced him that the tears denoted strength of character, not weakness. It turned out to be one of the most memorable scenes in the movie. Clark always underrated himself as an actor. I think his Rhett Butler will live forever as one of the screen’s classic performances ~ Olivia De Havilland
Happy Birthday Jean Harlow!
(March 3, 1911-June 7, 1937)
She didn’t want to be famous. She wanted to be happy.
Jean Harlow is another star destined to live on in the hearts of thousands. With Jean … there existed a nature so simple, so close to nature’s own pattern, that it simply cannot die. [F]or all the outer voluptuousness of Jean, that something which was real and honest burned high. — Photoplay Magazine, 1938
Happy 103rd Birthday to Harlean Harlow Carptenter aka Jean Harlow | 3 March 1911 - 7 June 1937
Through their artistry, wherever they wrought their magic, they made us believe, in place, time, light, story, or emotion. They mentored us, challenged us, inspired us, elevated us, and made us only want to be better. Because of their particular gifts, they gave us a greater understanding of the human condition and the human heart.We lost too many of them this year, but because of the great gift of film, they will live forever.
To those who are featured here tonight, and to the many deserving others who are in our hearts, we love you, we honor you, we miss you … but most of all, we thank you.
if Grace Kelly wins over Judy Garland tonight i will be so pissed!
"Men like me because I don’t wear a brassiere. Women like me because I don’t look like a girl who would steal a husband. At least not for long."
Happy 103rd Birthday to Harlean Harlow Carpenter
