Anita Page, 1910-2008

The Broadway Melody (1929)

The death has been announced of actress Anita Page at the age of 98. She started her career in silents; danced alongside Joan Crawford when Crawford was still hoofing it on a regular basis in her movies; and was one of the stars of the second winner of the Best Picture Oscar, 1929's The Broadway Melody.

I have not yet seen any announcement of TCM scheduling any of her movies in her honor.
