On Screen -- The Divorcee (1930)
"The Divorcee" is a great film featuring one of the most beautiful women ever to grace the big screen, Norma Shearer. One look from her could melt your heart or make your blood freeze in your veins. This film is one of the early talkies from 1930 and also stars Chester Morris who was featured in the "Boston Blackie" series of films. It's a story about love, betrayal, getting even, and reconciliation. This was Shearer's fifth film and, if I'm not mistaken, won her an Academy Award for "Best Actress". She was also married to MGM genius Irving Thalberg.
