Portrait of Jean Harlow from The Secret Six by Clarence Sinclair Bull. c. 1931
13 notes (via harlow-jean)
Jean Harlow actually had two ceremonies & two squares. The first one - on September 25, 1933 - was in connection with her movies Dinner at Eight and Bombshell. Harlow appeared onstage in front of a large paying audience, placed her prints, and the cement slab was wheeled off to be placed in the forecourt when it fell to the ground and smashed in front of the crowd. Jean was invited back 4 days later for a second attempt (right) - in the forecourt this time rather than onstage. Along with her signature, hand and footprints, she also placed three pennies in the wet cement for luck. The coins didn’t last long however, and were pried out by thieves.
