Constance Bennett

CONSTANCE BENNETT (1904-1965), born Constance Campbell Bennett

What Price Hollywood? (1932)Haven't you seen What Price Hollywood? (1932)? the inspiration for the later versions of A Star Is Born.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Topper (1937) Wonderful ghost comedy where Constance shows she can play giddy as well as Carole, Claudette et al.
Topper Takes a Trip (1939) Sequel sans Cary Grant from the original, but still great fun as the ghostly Constance befuddles Roland Young.
Bed of Roses (1933) Decent pre-Code melodrama that was a great vehicle for Constance and sidekick Pert Kelton.
Madame X (1966) Her final film, released posthumously; an important supporting role in the Lana Turner version of this chestnut.
