Colleen Moore getting dolled up in “Flaming Youth” (1923). Colleen debuted her Dutchboy bob haircut for the role, which was quickly copied by women around the globe and became a staple of the flapper image. Unfortunately only one reel of this film is known to exist. #colleenmoore

Happy Birthday to Colleen Moore who was born today in 1899. Colleen was a huge silent film star who personified the flapper of the 1920s. Colleen sent 15 of her films to be preserved at the Museum of Modern Art, only to have them be neglected and deteriorate over time. As a result, many of her films have been lost.
After her film career, Colleen made successful stock market investments and became a partner in Merrill Lynch and wrote a book: How Women Can Make Money in the Stock Market (1969).
Colleen also had a passion for dollhouses and created the Colleen Moore Dollhouse which has been a featured exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. #colleenmoore
