Our Sixth Blonde Bombshell is the so beautiful and so tragic Carole Landis

My Blonde Bombshell expert April VeVea and I take on our 6th Blondeshell the gorgeous and very tragic Carole Landis. I did a podcast over a year ago with Caroles biographer Eric Gans, and we covered Caroles whole short life. April and I discuss her career, her marriages, Rex Harrison and ultimately her suicide. Some people, even Caroles relatives think Rex had a hand in her death. We discuss it all.

 

Thanks to April for joining me in the summer series of the history of blonde bombshells. She is such a great guest and has a treasure trove of knowledge about classic movie blondes. 

 

Mostly, thanks to the listeners. You are the best. Lots of great stuff coming up.

Our fifth Blondeshell is the peekaboo girl Veronica Lake. We talk her movies, her hair and her life driven by alcoholism.

April VeVea is with me again to talk about our fifth blond bombshell (April calls her a pocket bombshell) Veronica Lake. We talk Veronica's rapid rise to stardom and her rapid decline, which was hastened by her alcoholism and mental illness. Veronica was disked by many of her peers and directors. She may have been a pocket bombshell, but she was a tough one. After Hollywood Veronica did some theatre and television shows then she just disappeared. She was discovered by a customer she had been waiting on at a bar. She was back in the limelight. She wrote a book and thought Hollywood would be calling her back. She was wrong. WE talk her final years and dying of liver disease caused by her alcoholism at the age of 50. 

Thanks so much to April for being such a great guest. 

Mostly thanks to the listeners. I so appreciate it.

My guest April VeVea and I talk blonde bombshell Betty Grable. Her pinup was the most popular during WW2..

My guest for The Blonde Bombshell series, April VeVea and I talk pin up queen Betty Grable. I have to admit musicals are not my favorite genre so I have not seen many Betty movies. Betty was another Blondeshell that had an incredibly pushy stage mother. She was truly awful. Betty became a star pretty early. She dated the notorious womanizer Artie Shaw, little known to her, Artie was also dating Judy Garland. Both were shocked when they found out he married Lana Turner. This guy was something else..Betty dated George Raft for two years, waiting patiently for him to divorce his wife. She realized it was never going to happen. She met Harry James at the Hollywood Canteen and the rest was history. We talk Betty's career, marriage, children. It's a good show. Lots of Betty things I never knew before.

 

Thanks so much to April for joining me.
