I'm sure as you know she was in the original Bulldog Drummond when she was something like 19 and is quite striking in that picture, if I may say so.

Yes, with Ronald Colman, I think TCM may have shown it a few times.

Image result for Joan Bennett We're No Angels

Hope some of you enjoyed We're No Angels last night. Bogie tried to help me by getting me cast in the film. Don't I look nice in color?

Yea,  I watched We're No Angels;  Very cute dark comedy.     I really like this scene where Bogie helps Joan with Christmas dinner:

We're No Angels 1955 Humphrey Bogart Peter Ustinov Joan Bennett - YouTube

And Joan had a very respectable singing voice when she sat down at the piano. How often did she sing in films? If that wasn't dubbed, she was certainly up to the task.

I'm not really sure. I haven't seen the film in awhile. I'll have to pay attention the next time I'm watching. As for Joan singing in other films, I can't remember any, but there are a LOT of her films I haven't see so that doesn't mean anything.

It's amazing how much the middle photo resembles Hedy Lamarr, whom many considered the most beautiful woman in Hollywood. Maybe it's the center part in the hair too. Anyway, Joan was a looker.

Yes, they had a similar look for awhile. Even exchanged husbands! :D

It's a neat trick lighting a cigarette with leather gloves on. Those damn hats couldn't have been easy for women to wear and still sport a do, but it looks like Joan managed OK. My old eyes can't quite make out the patch on her sleeve, but it seems to be something like Women Volunteers?
