  1. Lovely! But really, Paulette Goddard should not be a blonde!

  2. :) That's not the only jarring thing about this post relating to hair color. According to vintage film lore, Joan Bennett should not have gone brunette until 1938.

    Goddard, like Bennett, started out as a blonde and went brunette sometime between 1933 and her breakout role in Modern Times (1936).
