      Joan Blondell

      Highest Rated: 100% Footlight Parade (1933)

      Lowest Rated: 14% Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1975)

      Birthday: Aug 30, 1906

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      Unconventionally beautiful, gifted performer who appeared in over 80 films while maintaining a successful stage career. Blondell played a number of leads, secondary leads and, later, character parts, often as brassy but warm-hearted types; among her best known films are "Golddiggers of 1933" (1933), "Nightmare Alley" (1947) and "The Cincinatti Kid" (1965). She was married to cinematographer George Barnes (1933-35), actor Dick Powell (1936-45) and producer Mike Todd (1947-50).
