We’re a few days late, but the Pictorial finally has a winner in the giveaway sweepstakes for the Jean Harlow Blogathon.
If you’ll recall, to cap of Harlow’s Centenary Celebration, all participants in the blogathon were eligible to win a copy of the new book Harlow in Hollywood: The Blonde Bombshell in the Glamour Capital. The book had it’s launch party on Wednesday night at the grand opening of Harlow 100: the new Jean Harlow exhibit at the Max Factor Museum. Mark Vieira and Darrell Rooney, those consummate gentlemen, were duly delighted by the terrific turnout (as was I) and it was great to mingle with the new fans (my colleagues from the Director’s Guild), right along with the old fans (the inimitable Lisa Burks).
Every last blogger for baby deserves a copy of this book, but the roulette wheel of chance has smiled upon blogstress Riika who runs the lovely Harlean’s Heyday blog.
Congratulations, Riikka and a final heartfelt THANK YOU to all who did so much over the past week.
a group of good friends and I went hogwild at the museum, a place we’d never paid visit to before, and outside of Jean’s exhibit, had a tremendous time bolting all over the building to oogle and ooh and ahh and the memorabilia.
The book Harlow in Hollywood: The Blonde Bombshell in the Glamour Capital has now officially been released which means that the Jean Harlow Blogathon has officially wrapped. We’re plum tuckered out, yes, but wishing this week would have lasted forever.
So many incredible people from all over the world turned out and to show their support for darling Jean– classic film lovers young and old, new fans and seasoned vets.
The Pictorial would like to thank the gracious Lisa Burks for her tireless work this week, authors Darrell Rooney and Mark Vieira and, of course, every last one of you out there who rallied together to blog it for Baby.
I’m filled with pride to be part of such a terrific community of film lovers and classic Hollywood enthusiasts. As long as all of us keep our passions bright at heart, the golden world of Harlow’s Hollywood will never truly disappear.
We’ll be announcing the winner of the free copy of Harlow in Hollywood this Wednesday, March 9, at the premiere of the new Jean Harlow museum exhibit at the Max Factor Museum — so keep an eye out!
And don’t forget to support Jean all this month on Turner Classic Movies!
