Ready for a glimpse at Hollywood, old and new? First up, Alicia has a story so trashy that it erased a two-time Academy Award winner from Hollywood history: Gloria Grahame. At one point, she was married to her ex-son-in-law which meant that one of her four ex-husbands was her father-in-law. Yeah, it’s like that.

Then, Stacie has the much requested youthful marriage and divorce of certified Hollywood beautiful people Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. Warning: This episode contains a lot of trash cans.

Our Seventh Blonde Bombshell Is The Noir Dame, Gloria Grahame

My summer series The History Of Blonde Bombshells has one more blondeshell to go after Gloria Grahame, The finale will be the greatest blonde bombshell of them all, Marilyn Monroe. Thanks to April VeVea for being my guest for the series. She's fab..

Gloria was the queen of 50's noir. I absolutely love her. Gloria could be funny, poignant, a great southern dame, in The Bad And The Beautiful, she won best supporting actress Oscar. She had lots of insecurities about her looks, especially her lips. She's be in heaven today with lip injections.She thought her top lip was too small so Gloria would stuff tissue in her mouth to give her bigger lips, she also used cotton. Talk about dry mouth. Se had repeated  surgeries until finally the surgeon hit a nerve and her top lip was paralyzed. I thought Gloria was gorgeous regardless. She was married to director Nicholas Ray. Their marriage was falling apart while he directed and she starred in A Lonely Place. The set was no fun. Humphrey Bogart was upset he did not get his wife Lauren Bacall to be his costar. The HUGE scandal were reports that Nicholas Ray walked in on Gloria and her stepson (age thirteen) in bed together. Anthony was sent away and Gloria Was divorced. She made a bunch of great noirs like The Big Heat and Sudden Fear with Joan Crawford. To say the women didn't get along is an understatement. Then came another scandal involving Anthony  Ray. Gloria at age 35 married her former stepson aged 22 in 1960. It made a great Hollywood scandal and led to a bitter child custody battle with former husbands. Anthony and Gloria were married, had two children together and eventually divorced. Her marriage to Anthony was the longest,  lasting 14 years. Gloria was a strong woman but cancer eventually got her. She died in NYC at the age of 57. 

Thanks so much to April.

This month we're righting some wrongs here at Any Ladle's Sweet. Gloria Grahame shone in support roles in many noir films, under many great directors but she references her mother as her only influence on her acting style. Negative stories surrounding her personal life overtook her talent and hard work and fact and fiction mixed into a tawdry Hollywood Babylon style mess. Gloria was a unique talent and we are here to celebrate her hard work and mesmerising onscreen presence. We discuss 3 of her finest, In a Lonely Place (1950), The Big Heat (1953), and Human Desire (1954).

Gloria Grahame arrived in Hollywood in 1944, after Louis B. Mayer personally plucked her from the New York stage, and changed her name. But Grahame was the rare actress who Mayer didn’t know how to turn into a star. Finally in 1947, Mayer gave up on Grahame and sold her contract to RKO, where she flourished as a femme fatale in film noir. Grahame's career would be marred by her compulsive plastic surgery, her increasingly eccentric on-set behavior, and gossip about her love life, which included marriages to both director Nicholas Ray, and his son, Tony.
