**This is the fifteenth in a series of once living persons and the actors who portrayed them. Shown here is Norma Shearer portraying Marie Antoinette in the 1938 film “Marie Antoinette", co-starring Tyrone Power. Marie Antoinette, baptized Maria Antonia Josepha (or Josephina) Johanna, born November 2, 1755, was Archduchess of Austria, and Dauphine of France from 1770 to 1774 and Queen of France and Navarre from 1774 to 1792. She was the fifteenth and penultimate child of Holy Roman Empress Maria Theresa and Emperor Francis I. In April 1770, upon her marriage to Louis-Auguste, Dauphin of France, she became Dauphine of France. She assumed the title Queen of France and of Navarre when her husband ascended the throne as Louis XVI upon the death of his grandfather Louis XV in May 1774. Initially charmed by her personality and beauty, the French people eventually came to dislike her, accusing her of being extravagnant, promiscuous and of harboring sympathies for France's enemies, particularly Austria, her cou ...
The real Garbo worked just down the street… "In 1924, movie theater magnate Marcus Loew bought Metro Pictures Corporation (founded in 1916) and Goldwyn Pictures (founded in 1917) to provide a steady supply of films for his large Loew's Theatres chain. However, these purchases created a need for someone to oversee his new Hollywood operations… Loew addressed the situation by buying Louis B. Mayer Pictures on April 17, 1924. Because of his decade-long success as a producer, Mayer was made a vice-president of Loew's and head of studio operations in California, with Harry Rapf and Irving Thalberg as heads of production. Though Loew's Metro was the dominant partner, the new studio inherited Goldwyn's studios in Culver City, California, the former Goldwyn mascot Leo the Lion (which replaced Metro's parrot symbol)… Within one year, beginning in 1942, L.B. Mayer released his four highest-paid actresses from their studio contracts; Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, Greta Garbo and Jeanette MacDonald. After a tw ...
Jeanette Helen Morrison (July 6, 1927 – October 3, 2004), known professionally as Janet Leigh, was an American actress and author. She is best remembered for her performance in Psycho (1960), for which she was awarded the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and received an Academy Award nomination. By her marriage to actor Tony Curtis, she was the mother of Jamie Lee Curtis and Kelly Curtis. Discovered by actress Norma Shearer, Leigh secured a contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and made her film debut with a starring role in The Romance of Rosy Ridge in 1947. Over the following years, she appeared in several popular films of a wide variety of genres, including Act of Violence (1948), Little Women (1949), Holiday Affair (1949), Angels in the Outfield (1951), Scaramouche (1952), The Naked Spur (1953), Walking My Baby Back Home (1953) and Living It Up (1954). After two brief marriages at an early age, Leigh married actor Tony Curtis in 1951. During their high-profile marriage, the couple starred ...

Carmel Myers (April 4, 1899 – November 9, 1980) was an American actress who worked chiefly in silent movies. Life and careerr Myers was born in San Francisco, the daughter of an Australian rabbi and Austrian Jewish mother.[1] Her father became well-connected with California's emerging film industry, and introduced her to film pioneer D. W. Griffith, who gave Carmel a small part in Intolerance (1916). Myers also got her brother Zion Myers into Hollywood as a writer/director. From this beginning, Myers left for New York, where she acted mainly on stage for the next two years. She was signed by Universal, where she emerged as a popular actress in vamp roles. Her most popular film from this period is probably the romantic comedy All Night, opposite Rudolph Valentino. By 1924 she was working for MGM, making such films as Broadway After Dark, which also starred Adolphe Menjou, Norma Shearer and Anna Q. Nilsson. In 1925, she appeared in arguably her most famous role, that of the Egyptian vamp Iras in Ben-Hur, ...

Scott Hastings Beckett, or “Scotty” as he was affectionately known in the “Our Gang” series (pictured at left), was born in 1929 in Oakland, California. Beckett was discovered by a casting director at the age of three while singing for his hospitalized father in Pig Latin at Cedars of Lebanon. After auditioning, he landed a part in “Gallant Lady” (1933) appearing with fellow child actor and Rascal Dickie Moore (pictured at right). In 1934, Beckett followed Moore to the cast of Our Gang and became Spanky’s sidekick with his trademark baseball cap and oversized sweater. His tenure on the series was short as he was replaced by Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer the following year, but Beckett found further fame in features from the late 1930s into the early 1950s. Some of his films included “Dante’s Inferno” (1935) with Spencer Tracy, “Charge of the Light Brigade” (1936) with Errol Flynn, “Marie Antoinette” (1938) with Norma Shearer, “The Blue Bird” (1940) with Shirley Temple, an ...

Carole Lombard Gable.. I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it.. Here in Cabuyao or in Quezon City.. or wherever I am.. It doesn't matter where I am.. I had dreamt of her her in Cabuyao.. I have dreamt of her in Quezon City.. Now I get goosbumps thinking of what really happened to her that fateful night of January 16, 1942.. With what Orson Welles had said in an interview with filmmaker Henry Jaglomin in 1983.. This is how the conversation went.. "H.J.: Was it Norma Shearer, [Irving] Thalberg’s widow, who was killed in that plane crash? O.W.: No, no. She wasn’t killed in a plane. That was another thing that is amazing. After Thalberg died, Norma Shearer — one of the most minimally ­talented ladies ever to appear on the ­silver screen, and who looked like ­nothing, with one eye crossed over the other — went right on being the queen of Hollywood. Everybody used to say, “Mrs. Thalberg is coming,” “Miss Shearer is arriving,” as though they were talking about Sarah Bernhardt. H.J.: Or ...

A few movies that I recommend, yes, they are old, but, they are ones that cross over to modern ...The Women, with Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer, ( look beyond the camp and see it for what it is )., Imitation of Life, ( the one with Lana Turner and Juanita Moore, my mother always loved the one with Claudette Colbert, I prefer this one )...A Summer Place, with Sandra Dee and Richard Egan, there was a time, I know it seems so dumb now, but, there was a time when a baby out of wedlock or an affair were things to be ashamed of, ...Brian's Song, from 1971, James Caan and Billy Dee Williams, for a white man to grow to openly love a black man who loved that white man, not sexual, but, just heart and gut love as a person...and The Four Seasons, with Alan Alda, Carol Burnett, Rita Moreno and Bess Armstrong, teaching us how to accept change, that's what each of these movies have in common, that's just my thoughts.
I have been thrilled to be able to view TCM Movies this week,while stuck in alabama...some people told me i was being morbid, since all the actors i like are dead..I consider these *** stupid in this scene..ignorant..and hope they will F-off Rapidly...3 Sweets..Awesome talent...Norma Shearer, Ginger Rogers, Myrna Loy...They are my turn-ons..Awesome women!
"The Great Ziegfeld" (1936) (MGM) just started. Bliss. Every single actor that worked at MGM is in this movie. Even I'm in this movie! 3:) William Powell plays "Ziggy" and Luise Rainier plays the role of Anna Held. I had forgotten that Luise won the Academy Award for Best Actress for this movie. I love Luise in "the telephone scene" in this film. Her dialogue is wonderfully written. The movie also won other Oscars: Best Picture of 1936 and Best Dance Direction. They don't give Oscars for dance anymore. :( And . . . the "entire" crew and staff of MGM worked on this movie -- The Greats: Adrian; Hunt Stromberg; Cedric Gibbons; and Douglas Shearer (the brother of Norma Shearer, of course). :-D It's a long movie: 2 hours, 56 minutes. I love, love it!
The beautiful Hollywood Hotel built in 1905 and during the golden era of Hollywood played host to many famous celebrities, celebrities such as Rudolph Valentino, Alla Nazimova, and Norma Shearer made their home here in the 1920's. The building was razzed in the 1950's and is now the site of the Hollywood and Highland Center where the Oscars are currently held.
A movie still with 24 years old Norma Shearer in "The Devil's Circus" a drama written and directed by Danish director Benjamin Christensen in 1926.

Joseph Schildkraut won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1937 for "The Life of Emile Zola". His career began in the silent era with films such as D.W. Griffith's "Orphans of the Storm" with Lillian Gish (1921) and Cecil B. DeMille's "The King of Kings" (1927). He made a successful transition to sound and notable credits include "Cleopatra" with Claudette Colbert (1934), "Marie Antoinette" with Norma Shearer (1938), "Suez" with Tyrone Power (1938), *** s Delight" opposite Clark Gable and Norma Shearer (1939) and and "The Shop Around the Corner" with Jimmy Stewart. He even hosted his own anthology television series in 1953. He is buried in the Beth Olam Mausoleum at Hollywood Forever.
It's so interesting that, in all of his early films, when he was just starting to establish himself, Clark Gable hadn't grown his mustache yet. The story I heard was that he had to grow it for a role, and liked it so much he kept it. Here he in the film that really made him, with Norma Shearer, in 1931's "A Free Soul." Some pretty hot stuff going on in this one, even by today's standards.
If we could all come together with our fervent devotion and admiration of Norma Shearer, the world would truly be a beautiful place... :')

Ramón Novarro (February 6, 1899 – October 30, 1968) was a Mexican film, stage and television actor who began his career as a leading man in silent films in 1917. Novarro was promoted by MGM as a "Latin lover" and became known as sex symbol after the death of Rudolph Valentino. Novarro was born José Ramón Gil Samaniego on February 6, 1899 in Durango, Mexico, to Dr. Mariano N. Samaniego. He moved with his family to Los Angeles, California, to escape the Mexican Revolution in 1913. A second cousin of the Mexican actresses Dolores del Río and Andrea Palma, he entered films in 1917 in bit parts. He supplemented his income by working as a singing waiter. His friends, actor and director Rex Ingram and his wife, the actress Alice Terry, began to promote him as a rival to Rudolph Valentino, and Ingram suggested he change his name to "Novarro." From 1923, he began to play more prominent roles. His role in "Scaramouche" (1923) brought him his first major success. In 1925, Novarro achieved his greatest success ...

Clark Gable (quick bio) Clark Gable's mother died when he was seven months old. At 16 he quit high school, went to work in an Akron (Ohio) tire factory and decided to become an actor after seeing the play "The Bird of Paradise". He toured in stock companies, worked oil fields and sold ties. In 1924 he reached Hollywood with the help of Portland, Oregon, theatre manager Josephine Dillon, who coached and later married him (she was 17 years his senior). After playing a few bit parts he returned to the stage, becoming lifelong friends with Lionel Barrymore. After several failed screen tests (for Barrymore and Darryl F. Zanuck), Gable was signed in 1930 by MGM's Irving Thalberg. Joan Crawford asked for him as co-star in Dance, Fools, Dance (1931) and the public loved him manhandling Norma Shearer in A Free Soul (1931) the same year. His unshaven lovemaking with bra-less Jean Harlow in Red Dust (1932) made him MGM's most important star. At one point he refused an assignment and the studio punished him by loanin ...

The Last of Mrs. Cheyney (1937) is a drama/comedy motion picture starring Joan Crawford, William Powell, Robert Montgomery and Frank Morgan. The film tells the story of a chic jewel thief in England, who falls in love with one of her marks. Director Richard Boleslawski died suddenly in the middle of production, and the film was completed, uncredited, by Dorothy Arzner and George Fitzmaurice. The movie plot is adapted from the 1925 play by the same name, written by Frederick Lonsdale. Two other versions of the film were made: in 1929 with the same title, starring Norma Shearer, and in 1951, as The Law and the Lady, starring Greer Garson.

Tribute : Baba Amte (1914-2008) Dr Murlidhar Devidas Amte popularly known as Baba Amte, was an Indian social worker and social activist known particularly for his work for the rehabilitation and empowerment of poor people suffering from leprosy. He is the non-medical person in the world who has received maximum medicine related awards. The social activist is best known for the four Ashrams he helped set up in central India — three of them for leprosy patients and the fourth for adivasis (tribals). Anyone who has visited these places (Anandvan, Somnath, Ashokvan and Hemalkasa) would see the very rare combination of a fantastic visionary and also a great implementer of visions that he was. But, he had gone far ahead of that work. Early Life Baba Amte was born to Devidas and Laxmibai Amte in the city of Hinganghat, Maharashtra, India. It was a wealthy family. His father was a British government official with responsibilities for district administration and revenue collection. Murlidhar had acquired his nic ...

Following the theme for the year, "Shall We Dance?", Judi Grunert, program chairman, introduced the January program entitled "Tea for Two, the Old Soft Shoe". Opening the program were pianist, Cindy Shawver accompanying Mary Lou Collins, Joan Latham, Barbara Collier, Donna Smith, Judi Grunert, Fran Criswell and Virginia Chappel, who donned rainwear and carried umbrellas as they sang "Singin' in the Rain", words and music by Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown, published in 1929. However, it is unclear exactly when the song was written; it has been claimed that the song was performed as early as 1927. It was listed as No. 3 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs. "Singing in the Rain" was first performed by Doris Eaton Travis in the 1929 revue The Hollywood Music Box Revue. It became a hit and was recorded by a number of artists, notably Cliff Edwards, who also performed the number with the Bronx Sisters in the early MGM musical The Hollywood Revue of 1929. The song was performed by Annette Hanshaw in her album Volu ...

I have watched about 4000 movies over the past 8 days while I have been so incredibly sick... many of which I only saw part of or saw through a haze.

Literally ran down and sure enough, giant display of stuff, with no IDEA the worth. Got Norma Shearer for $35, and.a signed, framed receipt of Greta Garbo for $100. Once the transaction was complete I asked the guy, "Safe to say this now, but do you know what you have here?" He said, "A bunch of old stars none of us have ever heard of." I told him, "This Garbo, once I get it authenticated, may be worth between 2-3 Grand." He replied, "Who is Greta Garbo?"

Now The Red Shoes starring Norma Shearer is on AntennaTV. I really love these old films! I wish one of the digital channels would do a Thin Man retrospective. William Powell was so handsome and Myrna Loy was just glamorous. And who doesn't love Asta the dog?
Celebrating the birthday of one of the greatest designers of all time, the irrepressible ERTE!!! He became known in America when he started doing covers and inside illustrations for Harper's Bazar magazine in 1915. He worked for them for 22 years creating almost 240 covers. His fashion designs were ingenious and artistically fascinating. Starting his career in Paris, his first costume design was for Mata Hari. Louis B. Mayer brought him to MGM in 1925 and he dressed such stars as Joan Crawford, Renee Adoree, Norma Shearer and Carmel Myers. He continued designing until he died in 1990 at the tender age of 97. His impact on fashion, jewelry, graphics, and theater design cannot be underestimated. He still inspires to this day!!!
I love films from the '30s — It's my favorite decade in Hollywood by far. Norma Shearer. Joan Crawford. Rosalind Russell.

Watching Turner Classic Movies the Women with Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer those actresses were so badass!
I always confuse George Brent and George Raft, I try to remember Raft was the one who dated Norma Shearer & was involved with the mob.
There's a book coming out called "Conversations With Orson" by Henry Jaglom, his good buddy who used Orson in his first and, in Tuesday Weld's words, "Beyond dreadful" movie called "A Safe Place." Jaglom went on to become a fairly skillful journeyman-director. He used Weld in that first flick too. In fact, some claim that the only reason he shot it was to photograph her face, which he was understandably obsessed with. Anyhoo, he often dined with Orson, (or "Orse", as Irving Thalberg called him), and recorded their conversations. I read a snippet and it's fascinating stuff. Orson, of course, knew everyone. Carol Lombard he especially liked. In fact, she is one of the very few he had anything good to say about. Norma Shearer, according to Orson, was a no-talent outrageously treated like royalty by H'wood even after Hearst died. Orson also knew a lot of gangsters. In his New York theater days he liked to hang out in nightclubs till 5 a.m., and thus, as he put it, you could not NOT know them. The ...

Sequestageddon By Mark Steyn March 1, 2013 5:00 P.M. A few weeks ago, Ann Coulter announced that she was bored of American politics and was spending her days watching Turner Classic Movies. I confess that, when it comes to Beltway melodrama, I too am fighting vainly the old ennui, and minded to plump up the pillows and settle back with a bucket of bonbons and a beribboned Shih-tzu for an all-night Norma Shearer marathon. At least, unlike Washington, there’s a chance you may catch something you haven’t already seen a hundred times before. For example, I’ve a yen to see Roberta (RKO, 1935), in which Irene Dunne sings: Yesterdays Yesterdays Days I knew as happy sweet sequester’d days . . . I believe that was the last known use of this blameless and mellifluous word until it was conscripted by the political class for this month’s dreary Mayan Apocalypse of the Month thrill ride. Say what you like about those Mayan guys, but they only schedule an apocalypse once every 5,126 years. Only Washington wou ...
Garbo was nominated four times for an Academy Award for Best Actress, including twice in 1930, for Anna Christie and Romance.[126][127] She might have been a victim of MGM's inner politics:[128] she lost out to Irving Thalberg's wife Norma Shearer, who won for The Divorcee.

Other 1920s Box-Office Stars: The top box-office stars in the 1920s included Harold Lloyd, Gloria Swanson, Tom Mix, Norma Talmadge, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks Sr., Colleen Moore, Norma Shearer, John Barrymore, Greta Garbo, Lon Chaney, Sr., Clara Bow, and "Little Mary" Pickford. Hauntingly mysterious and divine, Greta Garbo's first American film was The Torrent (1926), followed quickly by The Temptress (1926). Her first major starring vehicle was as a sultry temptress in torrid, prone love scenes with off-screen lover John Gilbert inFlesh and the Devil (1926). MGM renamed Broadway actress Lucille Le Sueur and christened her "Joan Crawford" in 1925. And Louise Brooks made her debut film in mid-decade with Street of Forgotten Men (1925). Glamorous MGM star Norma Shearer insured her future success as "The First Lady of the Screen" by marrying genius MGM production supervisor Irving Thalberg in 1927. Clara Bow, a red-haired, lower-class Brooklyn girl was subjected to a major publicity campaign by B. ...
Ah, more memories...I really liked this version of "Romeo & Juliet"...much better in fact than the one with the comparably septuganarians Leslie Howard & Norma Shearer...I was a big fan of Olivia Hussey.with the emphasis on WAS.
Says Terri, "Jean Harlow at her wedding to Paul Bern, July 2, 1932. The marriage lasted just two months, with Bern being found dead in his home in October of that year. Witnessing the wedding were her MGM boss Irving Thalberg and wife, Norma Shearer."
Elaborate Adrian designed costumes for Norma Shearer in Marie Antoinette. He designed four thousand costumes for this film.
Mr. and Mrs. Irving Thalberg, Norma Shearer, married from 1927 to 1936. According to Wiki: During his twelve years at MGM, Thalberg supervised the production of over four hundred films. Although Thalberg and his colleagues at MGM knew he was "doomed" to not live much past age 30 due to heart disease, he loved producing films. He continued developing innovative ideas and overseeing most of MGM’s pictures. Under Thalberg's management, MGM released over 40% more films yearly than Warner Brothers, and more than double Paramount's releases. From 1924 to 1936, when Thalberg died at age 37, "almost every film bore Thalberg's imprint," notes Mark Vieira.
They missed out one of the most important faces of 1930s cinema, Norma Shearer, not to mention Betty Grable and Lana Turner in the 40s.
I'm pretty sure that is Norma Shearer? forgive me if I am wrong. I love her in Cheaper by the Dozen, but that was even better!

Did You Know? – Telegrams of congratulation on the December 31, 1928 opening of the new Tivoli Theatre came to owner E. M. Viquesney and manager Pat Cassidy from such movie stars of the day as Gary Cooper, Clara Bow, Buddy Rogers, Emil Jennings, Lon Chaney and Norma Shearer.
Says Terri, "A California native, Jeannette Morrison born July 6, 1927, became an actress by chance when actress Norma Shearer saw her picture at a ski lodge ran by Jeanette's parents and thought she should go to Hollywood. She followed Ms. Shearers advice and became Janet Leigh."
That being said about Norma Shearer, Rosalind Russell was definitely my favorite of "The Women".
I watched that old movie "The Women" today: Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell--BOOM!
Last nights movie was a 1939 feature, "The Women", starring Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell and a host of other top name stars. A George Cukor directed movie with an all female cast. A tale about battling and bonding between friends and enemies. Good show.
The original movie "The Women" comes on TCM at 11 am. It stars Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell and Joan Fontaine. It's a wonderful movie, if you get a chance, check it out.
And once more, with feeling: Our review of starring Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer.
Afternoon re-post: Our review of George Cuckor's starring Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer
New Video: and Sharky review George Cuckor's starring Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer:
Tuning in to 1939's *** s Delight" (due to my interest in lead Norma Shearer, in the waning days of her career), I had no idea what to expect--maybe a screwball comedy? Instead, I saw the film version of a Pulitizer Prize winning play (adapted by it's author, Robert Sherwood) that dealt with a pacifist message set against the mounting call to war in Europe--also featuring Clark Gable's sole on-screen song and dance number, "Puttin' On The Ritz"! It was a curious thing, never boring, but hard to recommend aside from it's historical significance--though Gable's atypical role was an interesting chance of pace. There were even two endings, one for domestic release, one for international audiences (for which MGM toned down several aspects of the play so as to not insult hopefully paying customers--apparently it didn't work; this was no hit on either side of the Atlantic). Charles Coburn, Burgess Meredith, Edward Arnold co-star. Worth a look--maybe...
