HOLY SHEARER, IT’S NORMA DAY!

Shhh don’t tell Jeanette we’re interrupting the Monday JAM…

May I present to all of you fine ladies and gentlemen of the… readership of this blog, or something, a day with the GREAT, the WONDERFUL, the ABSOLUTELY ALL THE TIME SERIOUS BUSINESS…

We begin our day with our exercises, to get the blood pumping.

A busy day, indeed! With so little time to rush to a business meeting with Irving and Marion, we must dress in what we have lying around.

Have an early dinner with Jeanette MacDonald and Gene Raymond because someone told her that we were interrupting her scheduled day, and she demanded to be a part of this... for a tax write off...

One thought on “HOLY SHEARER, IT’S NORMA DAY!

  1. Kayla – What a delightful tribute and well deserved to Norma who is going to be TCM’s “Star of the Month” in November. While her name is unfortunately not nearly as well known as other stars of her era, it should be because she could do just about anything and so effortlessly. I’ve shown three of her films during various classes I’ve taught (“The Women”, “Escape” and “Marie Antoinette”) and the overall response is “where has she been all my life?” Thanks for reminding us why the title of “First Lady of MGM” was not because of the man she was married to but because of her immense talent.
