Joan Blondell at home

These pictures, dating from the mid-30's I believe, come from a series of two photo shoots. One was conducted at Blondell's Lookout Mountain home in Hollywood after a series of renovations. The others come from Joan's home on Cape Cod in my home state of Massachusetts.

These are great pictures! It looks like her homes were kind of down to earth, which is really unique for that extravagant time period. I just love Joan Blondell so this was really fun :)

Lovely pictures. I always like finding old photographs that show stars in natural envrionments, as opposed to those taken on set.

Wait a little while, I'll have another post and show a whole bunch of Blondell candids while she is on movie sets.

Do you know where on Cape Cod she had a home?

On the back of the 8th photo in the post, there is a snipe on the back:

"Joan Blondell, Warner Brothers star, in her Cape Code living room. Note the old English tupe grate, andirons and the Yankee Clipper reproduction over the mantel."

Other than that I have been able to find no other information.

That's an amazing collection of Mrs Blondell. I've got the big smile of Joan on my face right now. Retrospectively, your pictures are the epic moment of this week. Thanks !
