FAIRYTALE LIGHT



Leatrice Joy (1893-1985) With a necktie,a tailored suit and a mannishly-cropped bob, she was the model of the 1920s no-nonsense career girl and sophisticated woman of the world.Petulant and perhaps too emancipated for the times,her liberated lady persona was ultimately “chastened” by the will and love of her virile leading man.In historical context, Joy was the prototype for the Katherine Hepburn and Rosalind Russell strong women-feminist models in the late 1930s and 1940s. Making her film debut as an extra in 1917,she graduated to playing opposite comics Billy West and Oliver Hardy.Director Cecil B. DeMille took her under his wing and starred her in several of his films.Often playing career girls dressed in mannish suits, or sophisticated society girls, she is generally credited with starting the bobbed-hair craze in the 1920s.She retired shortly after the advent of sound, but made occasional appearances in small supporting roles over the years.- Kit « Rusty Autumn » by Linda Cumberland
