Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Kay Francis (1905-1968) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles. Oklahoma City born actress whose delightful lisp added an extra touch of authenticity to her often heartrending dramatic roles. Stately actress could also bring quite a bit of whimsy to lighter comedic roles. Formed a popular team with William Powell from 1930-32, first at Paramount in Behind the Make-Up (1930), Street of Chance (1930), For the Defense (1930), Ladies' Man (1931), and then after jumping to Warner Bros. in their two most memorable pairings, Jewel Robbery (1932) and One Way Passage (1932). Other Kay Francis titles that remain popular today include Trouble in Paradise (1932), Mandalay (1934), Confession (1937), In Name Only (1939), and Four Jills in a Jeep (1944).
