The Joyce Compton Look

This is too funny: blogger and retro style enthusiast Lisa Freemont demonstrates how to restyle your hair exactly like Joyce Compton's in The Awful Truth. Lisa is correct that the combination of bangs and curls was unusual in classic moviedom, and Joyce owned that look. Speaking of bangs, Joyce herself shares an amusing anecdote in her book about clashing with fellow bebanged star Marlene Dietrich when the two were cast in 1941's Manpower. Apparently Miss Dietrich didn't take too well to having another actress with bangs in the picture, but luckily Joyce unruffled Marlene's feathers with her honeyed Southern charm. Enjoy the video, y'all.
