Blondell Bombshells

Blondell Bombshells

2 Episodes

A ubiquitous presence throughout the Warner Bros. films of the 1930s, Joan Blondell had a brassy charm that was perfectly suited to the pre-Code era, when chiselers, good-time girls, and wisecracking dames were screen staples. She’s at her sassy, scene-stealing best playing world-wise showgirls in both the pulp firecracker THREE ON A MATCH (costarring Ann Dvorak and Bette Davis) and the eyeball-whirling Depression-era musical GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933.
