Did You Know?
In the 20s, you were a face. And that was enough. In the '30s, you also had to be a voice. And your voice had to match your face, if you can imagine that.

Daughter of Edward Blondell (1865-1943), born Levi Bluestein in Poland, and raised in Columbus, Indiana, and Katherine (née Cain) Blondell (1884-1952), born in the state of New Jersey.
