Happy 103rd Birthday Jean Harlow!

Jean Harlow was born on March 3, 1911. So here's my customary "birthday post" to my favorite actress ever and the lady who graces my blog header.

I haven't watched any of her films lately. I've watched a few clips from her films on YouTube but that's about it. I didn't bring any of her films on DVD with me.

Still, her work as an actress is stuff I go back to over and over again. She was tough, and funny, and vulnerable, and brass, and cynical, and sweet.

As I sit here and push the curtain back and look out the window of my apartment here on Lamma Island, I can almost see the South China Sea so it only seems fitting that I post a clip from her wonderful 1935 film China Seas.
