The other night I put on TCM and caught the last 10 minutes of a movie called Confession. It starred Kay Francis, an actress that I know nothing about. She was once the highest paid actress in Hollywood.
Those fabulous actresses from the 1930s are all but forgotten to us today. In the few scenes I saw, she was marvelously playing out a courtroom melodrama and I couldn’t take my eyes off of her.
So I bought a biography called Kay Francis: I Can’t Wait To Be Forgotten. I love reading biographies of famous women, especially actresses.
Here are some timeless images of Kay Francis.
