Starring in the role of Juliette “Jette” d’Arc Dubois, sister of leading lady Jeanne Camille Dark, will be Ms. Jean Harlow, nee Harlean Harlow Carpenter (1911 – 1937). She was not originally whom I had in mind for the role, but The Voices were quite insistent and excited when I consented. Apparently Ms. Harlow was quite a favorite of The Voices in their day. Since she was born in the same month as my late grandfather, perhaps there is something of a vague connection. I was paging through photos of women named “Jette” on instinct, impulse, or direction, and almost ready to give up, I suddenly heard, “She’s coming soon!” When I stumbled across Ms. Harlow, right at the end, The Voices said, “There she is.”
To which I responded, “Oh no she is not. I am not putting Jean Harlow in my book.” Well, The Voices sometimes need to be rewarded for their gifts, do they not? Here is a video I found as a special treat. I think I spoil them. I’m certain I felt one tear up.
Anyway, we shall see how Ms. Harlow progresses in the role. I am certain that Foss will like her much more than Louis B. Mayer did. He’s not William Powell, but one can’t have everything, Ms. Harlow.
