Over my Christmas/New Years travels I was able to put together enough free time to watch a few movies on TCM and some online outlets. One was The Divorcee starring the fantastic, and usually under appreciated, Norma Shearer.
Late last year I had picked up a small lot of British postcards of Ms. Shearer. I had scanned them but didn't have a reason to post. Now I do. Nothing much to say about the postcards other than they all have a 'postcard back' and depict her in various roles from her days at MGM. Her best movies came in the 'pre-Hays Code' days of the late 20s/early 30s. The freewheeling productions of that era were a lot more 'racy' than those produced after the Code was strictly enforced from about 1934 or so.
Norma Shearer was a big star in her time but she retired from Hollywood at a relatively young age and disappeared from the screen and most people's memories.
