Was just thinking…

You know what I find really weird? That people like Jean Harlow or Carole Lombard or John Barrymore and so many others died DURING The Golden Age of Hollywood, at their peak. I can’t get my head around it. You kind of expect them all to grow old and have their own TV show and appear as guest stars on The Golden Girls or something… to think that some of them died when all the craziness and commotion of The Golden Age was still going on… I don’t know, it’s just odd. And then when you put things into perspective, it’s even more strange. Like, for instance, by 1939 (Hollywood’s greatest year), Jean Harlow had been dead for two years. Isn’t that awful? So, basically, she never saw Gone With the Wind or The Wizard of Oz. Weird, huh? I mean, obviously, their legacy lives on and that’s what matters, but it’s so strange and sad when you think about it.
