Relevant to my Interests, Ep. 8

Norma Shearer was America's lazy-eyed sweetheart; the de facto imperatrix of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer during the 1930s. It helped that she was married to producer Irving Thalberg, a fact her studio rivals--chief among them Joan Crawford--were wont to dwell on. Of course, Norma was a perfectly good actress in her own right, and wielded great influence in Hollywood until her impromptu retirement in 1942.
