Happy Birthday Paulette Goddard

June 3, 1910 ~ April 23, 1990 Paulette Goddard

Paulette Goddard was one of the first, what I considered “underground” actresses,  I had stumbled upon when I was younger. “Underground” because she wasn’t Marilyn, or Audrey, or Elizabeth. Of course then I found she was once married to Charlie Chaplin, and then she didn’t seem so underground anymore. As part of the “the sophisticated studio” ( Paramount), she shared the studio lot with Claudette Colbert, Veronica Lake, and Marlene Dietrich. Paramount was where  the women were chic, and the men were suave. Paulette  “became” a real actress in Cecil B. Demille’s Unconquered,  showed off her talent in Second Chorus, opposite Fred Astaire, was included in The Women, and played the spoiled southern belle chasing  John Wayne in Reap the Wild Wind. Beautiful, Fashionable, and Timeless, take a minute to brush up on your Paulette Goddard, in honor of her Birthday today!
