The Platinum Page is extremely pleased to be participating in the first ever Jean Harlow Blogathon this week!
Big thanks to Carley Johnson at The Kitty Packard Pictorial for bringing together a vast array writers who will be "Blogging For Baby" in honor of her centennial, March 3. Be sure to bookmark Carley's beautiful site to keep up with all the updates as we roll along.
This weekend I had my thinking cap on to come up with some article ideas, when my friend and fellow Harlow fan Reg Williams pinged me about his efforts to encourage fans to fill Jean's room in the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Glendale with flowers.
If you'd like to participate, contact The Flower Shop at Forest Lawn to place your order. Please note, Forest Lawn's $3 placement fee will apply. The delivery location is Great Mausoleum, Sanctuary of Benediction, Private Family Mausoleum Room #34, Crypt B.
Heads up, local fans ~ Reg tells me he's researched prices, and arrangements are less expensive if you purchase them from the shop at the park in person rather than online or by telephone.
How will we know if the goal is met? Being a private room, special permission is needed to visit in person. The Platinum Page is on the case and will be working our contacts to bring you officially sanctioned updates, so stay tuned!
There's lots going on in Hollywood this week, starting with the launch of the much anticipated book Harlow In Hollywood: The Blonde Bombshell in the Glamour Capital, 1928-1937 by Darrell Rooney and Mark Vieira, from Angel City Press.
On Jean's actual 100th birthday, Thursday, March 3, the authors will be unveiling a special Harlow exhibit at The Hollywoood Museum in the Historic Max Factor Building which will feature many of the artifacts seen in the book.
On Sunday, March 6, they will be doing a presentation and Q&A to introduce the Harlow classic comedy, Bombshell, at American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre.
The Platinum Page will be on the scenes to provide details. Hope to see you there!
