Norma Shearer (Montreal, 10 de agosto de 1902 — Los Ángeles, 12 de junio de 1983). Si bien su carrera se extiende desde 1920 hasta 1942, su imagen está absolutamente ligada al período 1930-1936, aunque hoy día sea más recordada por dos películas posteriores, "Maria Antonieta" (Marie Antoniette, 1938) y "Mujeres" (The Women, 1939).
