Pearl



Hello I'm Pearl/london/milliner I'm originally from manchester I'm studying embroidery at the royal school of needle work in hampton court. I'm a pretty happy person I get over excited alot but most of the time I'm pretending to be cynical and sarcastic. Secretly I'm a Romantic at heart! I just want to go back to the days of glamour and seamed stockings. I love pin curls David Niven original 40s womens wear gin and tonic records stitching and reading. abit more than that but ask and you will find out as I do enjoy a good natter!  Angels Online

The dilemma for Anna May Wong was increasingly obvious. Despite her triumph in The Thief of Bagdad and continued good reviews in mediocre productions, her career was stalled in Hollywood. True, she was now a staple in movie magazines, with full-page spreads appearing regularly. But her chances of moving up from supporting or featured player to star were improbable. Production codes against interracial kissing meant that she could not graduate to star billing, even in films with Orientalist themes. Rather, she had to watch as less talented white women took the roles that might have given her more fame, and at least more sympathetic parts. Despite her great beauty, she was cast as a prostitute, an opium dealer, or simply as insignificant color. Her final scenes featured suicide by knife or death by overdose of opium.

"Don’t you know that a man being rich is like a girl being pretty? You wouldn’t marry a girl just because she’s pretty, but my goodness, doesn’t it help?"

Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
