Sorry about that, I didn't read your last Comments, thank you I now understand, by the way I still think Dick Powell is a wonderful Musical Actor like Cageny and Astaire.

I love Joan! Have you seen her in NIghtmare Alley? She played opposite my "sweetie", Tyrone Power. She was great, as usual.

Love Joan. There's no one in the world who doesn't love Joan. Everyone loves Joan! The very idea of Joan! To see her in a movie is to feel pleasure. Federico Fellini once mentioned Joan as one of his favorite American actresses. From PUBLIC ENEMY to OPENING NIGHT and GREASE in the 70s. Remember her performance in A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN? And how about her dealer in THE CINCINNATI KID? The whole world loves and remembers Joan.

I'm susprise, you go by the Blondell and not Powell, she did marry Dick Powell and they had one child together and Powell adopted her son Norman, so they thought he went by the named Powell, know their child together go by the named Powell, so I'm susprise that your last name is Blondell, please answer my question to help me understand.

@saphopoem Thanks!! :) That's one of the reasons why I made this tribute....she doesn't get as much credit for her comedic and all around natural talent.
