Lavender Blonde: Kim Novak

[The lovely Kim Novak]

Kim Novak is one of my favorite actresses and I think she is one of the most underrated and overlooked actresses of her generation. Kim Novak was a unique phenomenon. As the last of the "manufactured" screen goddesses and Columbia's answer to Marilyn Monroe, Kim had a more refined sex appeal than the other blond goddesses of the 1950's. She radiated a kind of mystery that harked back to the days of Garbo and Dietrich. Onscreen Kim Novak seems distant, enigmatic, thoughtful and somehow sad. She has been referred to as the reluctant goddess, the melancholy blonde and the lavender blonde. The studio created the idea that lavender was Kim Novak's favorite color as part of her movie star image. However, I think the term Lavender Blonde fits Kim Novak - it sets her apart from the sunny Doris Day or the gilded Marilyn Monroe. Lavender is closer to blue - makes you think of Madeleine in Vertigo, lost in thought by the seashore. Anyway, I thought it was high time that this lovely Hollywood legend had a homepage dedicated to her so here it is! Please visit my My Kim Novak Tumblr Blog and My Kim Novak Pinterest Board!

Novak in Print

II have added a second Newsweek article about Kim from 1959. Although the tone of both Newsweek articles is rather patronizing it's still interesting to see how Novak was seen by the press back in the 1950's: Kim Novak Articles

Thank you for visiting my Lavender Blonde: Kim Novak page! This page was the first Novak fan site on the web (as far as I can tell) and was created in early 1999. I have no way of contacting Kim Novak and do not know of any address to which you may send fan mail. I don't know if she knows about this website or not. But please, do not email me asking how you may get in touch with her because I do not have that information.
