Joan Blondell (August 30, 1906 – December 25, 1979)
She may have usually been cast in supporting roles but she always stood out!
Here she is with Mary Astor who is working on a lovely piece of needlework.
Another interesting knitting bag - the slogan says "Let's Hit Back Hard" so she is knitting for the troops. My computer will only let me make out the word "America" on the lower part of the bag but there is more above it.
Terrific shoes, and a lovely little footstool.
