We’re a few days late, but the Pictorial finally has a winner in the giveaway sweepstakes for the Jean Harlow Blogathon.
If you’ll recall, to cap of Harlow’s Centenary Celebration, all participants in the blogathon were eligible to win a copy of the new book Harlow in Hollywood: The Blonde Bombshell in the Glamour Capital. The book had it’s launch party on Wednesday night at the grand opening of Harlow 100: the new Jean Harlow exhibit at the Max Factor Museum. Mark Vieira and Darrell Rooney, those consummate gentlemen, were duly delighted by the terrific turnout (as was I) and it was great to mingle with the new fans (my colleagues from the Director’s Guild), right along with the old fans (the inimitable Lisa Burks).
Every last blogger for baby deserves a copy of this book, but the roulette wheel of chance has smiled upon blogstress Riika who runs the lovely Harlean’s Heyday blog.
Congratulations, Riikka and a final heartfelt THANK YOU to all who did so much over the past week.
a group of good friends and I went hogwild at the museum, a place we’d never paid visit to before, and outside of Jean’s exhibit, had a tremendous time bolting all over the building to oogle and ooh and ahh and the memorabilia.

Looks like a great event! That mural really is a curiosity.
Again, many thanks for the book! I still can’t believe I won! The blogathon was so much fun, thank you for inviting me to take part in it, and this is icing on the cake.
Looks like a wonderful event and a truly fantastic exhibit. Wish I could have been there!
Great pictures! Wish I could’ve made it and you looked beautiful!
Ahh! i would have loved to go to this. Although i used to live near LA, I’m a bit ashamed to admit I have never been inside that museum. $15 or whatever they charge for admission always seemed too high, but it looks like the contents would have been worth it!
Also, congrats to Riikka! I really enjoyed her posts about Jean.
Wow that looks awesome! So jealous!
