Jean was a beautiful and talented actress. It is so sad she passed away so young. I love the black and white movies.

thank you! for all the great photos she was special and makes the current crop of "sexy" look like they belong on the side of the road. I had heard tell that she made sure she was blonde elsewhere too. What was her eye color? Some show green others blue.

Born in Kansas City, Missouri. This is what is called the Heartland of America. The dentist's daughter eloped at age 16 with a young businessman and wound up in Los Angeles where she found work as an extra and bit player. This was a good move to get away from a dentist, I try to avoid them myself. They are so arrogant and they cost too much as well. My advice is just keep flossing and brushing, plus take a calcium supplements to strengthen your bones and teeth. It is better to practice preventative measures as opposed to getting cut up and losing your hard earned bucks. Back to Jean Harlow, her first big break came in 1930 when Howard Hughes revamped his unreleased 1920 silent Hells Angels (1930) into a sound version, replacing the heavy accented Swede Greta Nissen with Harlow. Hughes loaned her out for a number which, like Frank Capra's 'Platinum Blonde (1931) featured her platinum hair and more than obvious sexuality - she claimed she never wore underwear. Later on she made three films with Spencer Tracey and six with Clark Gable, receiving much improved critical claim for her acting, allure and comedic talent. It sounds like she had the right connections from the start and ended up with the right actors to raise her to the top level. Sort of like be influenced by the people you hang out with, or something like that. Let's see, everyone on the MGM lot called her The Baby with the exception of Clark Gable. A very close friend, he always called her Sis. Was known as "The Original Platinum Blonde".
