Bette Davis and Joan Blondell in 1932, around the time they appeared in Three on a Match.

I'll take this Bette and Joan over Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? anyday...

I second that emotion--Joanie was quite a dish in those days. For years I refused to believe she was the same actress in Here Come the Brides (1968-70).

That was actually a pretty fun movie? Tell me- was it considered A or B at the time? I have a really hard time telling sans context. (my guess is quality B) Thanks!

Well, it's a Warner Bros. pre-code, but with three rising female stars (Ann Dvorak is the third) and directed by Mervyn LeRoy, so I'd say for that studio, at that time, it was probably an A-picture.
