Will Gwen Stefani succeed in her movie debut?

MOVIE ”The Aviator”

WHEN Dec. 17, 2004

PLAYING Jean Harlow (inset), the 1930s film goddess and a protegée of Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio) when the aircraft tycoon was a Hollywood movie mogul

WHAT’S THE STORY? Martin Scorsese directs this biopic of Hughes’ younger years, marked by his relationships with such actresses as Harlow, Katharine Hepburn (Cate Blanchett), and Ava Gardner (Kate Beckinsale).

WHY SHE MIGHT ROCK The No Doubt singer definitely has the locks to play Hollywood’s original platinum blonde.

WHY SHE MIGHT HIT A SOUR NOTE Scorsese’s movies tend to be boys’ clubs; will Stefani be more than just a girl?
