On Blu-ray: The Glorious Quartet of Loy, Powell, Harlow, and Tracy in Libeled Lady (1936)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Dec 22, 2020

The first time I watched Libeled Lady (1936), in the midst of my stunned teenage discovery of Jean Harlow, was on a well-worn VHS I’d borrowed from the library. What a gigantic shift it was to see it on a new Blu-ray from Warner Archive; it looks and sounds so sharp and clean it feels like a d read more

Interrogation (2020) s01e09 – P.I. Charlie Shannon vs Amy Harlow 2003

The Stop Button Posted by on Feb 19, 2020

As I continue putting way too much thought into “Interrogation,” this episode stands distinctly in the “anti” non-linear department. This episode sets up both the pilot—so the penultimate episode loops back to the first—but also seems to be setting up the next—last—episode. It’s all read more

A cosmic Carole...in a Harlow style?

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Dec 27, 2017

For a brief spell in the early 1930s, Carole Lombard appeared to be emulating Jean Harlow by making her hair as platinum as possible. (You could argue that peek-a-boo hairstyle was predicting the rise of Veronica Lake, who would gain stardom at the end of the decade.) Now, there's another link of so read more

When Harlow was just an extra

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Jul 22, 2016

It's hard to imagine that an actress with such obvious radiance and allure as Jean Harlow, had to battle it out with thousands of other starlets and chorus girls for extra and bit roles. It seems her star quality was not as clear to film moguls of the late 1920s as it is to contemporary viewers.&nbs read more

The gown you missed, and a happy 104th to Harlow

Carole & Co. Posted by vp19 on Mar 3, 2015

Are you ticked off because you couldn't make it to the Hollywood Costume exhibit at the future site of the Academy of Motion Pictures Museum (it closed yesterday), and thus missed a chance to see Carole Lombard's gown from "My Man Godfrey" (the one she's wearing above) up close and personal? Well, d read more

Carole at Columbia, Harlow style

Carole & Co. Posted by vp19 on Aug 29, 2014

It's no secret that in the early 1930s, Carole Lombard, searching for the optimal "look," briefly emulated Jean Harlow's ultra-blonde appearance -- not quite the platinum locks Harlow already was famed for, but an ash-blonde effect that looked equally at home in black-and-white portraits.However, th read more

Jean Harlow is Reckless 1935 Joan Crawford is Dancing

Pop Culture ImagineMDD Posted by ImagineMDD on Jun 27, 2014

Young and Reckless in 1935 Reckless MGM's 1935 musical melodrama is the story of a Broadway singer and dancer Mona Leslie (Jean Harlow). She and a rich playboy, Rob Harrison Jr. (Franchot Tone) marry impulsively. This is upsetting to his stuffy father. Turns out that Rob was engaged to Josephine read more

For Gable it’s Harlow or Loy in WIFE VERSUS SECRETARY

Once Upon a Screen Posted by Aurora on Feb 1, 2014

Imagine this… You look exactly like Clark Gable, you’re married to a woman who looks exactly like Myrna Loy and you get to go to an office every day where your secretary looks exactly like Jean Harlow.  Oh, and you have a successful career and make lots of money.  In other words, your read more

"Bombshell," or Harlow Can You Go?

The Man on the Flying Trapeze Posted by David on Jul 30, 2012

We know what -- and who -- "Bombshell" (1933) is about from the get-go: Burns is the name, Lola Burns, and any resemblance to Jean Harlow is purely intentional. She's platinum blonde, she's an international sex symbol and she's the star of "Red Dust." She lives in a gorgeous Hollywood mansion read more

The Style Essentials--Jean Harlow Draped in Deco Decadence in 1933's DINNER AT EIGHT

GlamAmor Posted by on Mar 5, 2012

In doing a Month (or so) of Art Deco, I would be remiss if I did not include George Cukor's 1933 classic Dinner at Eight.  It is an iconic moment for both film and fashion...one of those rare occasions in which a great star is put into the hands of an equally great costume designer.  In th read more

Harlow in Hollywood: The Blonde Bombshell in the Glamour Capital 1928-1937

Sittin' on a Backyard Fence Posted by Jill Blake on Jan 31, 2012

Jean Harlow epitomizes the essence of old Hollywood glamour and stardom. Although she died young, she has an  immortal presence that has lasted for over 70 years. Perhaps it’s because we never saw her grow old. Her youthfulness, beauty, and sexuality are all perfectly preserved as if she were read more

75 years ago, Harlow wows Washington

Carole & Co. Posted by vp19 on Jan 30, 2012

One benefit of being a movie star that's denied to mere mortals is there's a good chance you'll be able to meet the president of the United States. Carole Lombard had that opportunity on Dec. 29, 1940, not only meeting Franklin D. Roosevelt at the White House but witnessing FDR deliver one of his mo read more

For Harlow, everything's coming up Roses

Carole & Co. Posted by vp19 on Dec 31, 2011

As far as I know of, Carole Lombard never posed for a publicity still that expressly had a New Year's theme (the header we've been running this week doesn't count, since it was from an actual scene in "Made For Each Other"), so this is the best we can come up with, a shot with balloons in the backgr read more

This is the twelfth installment of my monthly classic actress beauty tips that I have tested.  I apologize that May’s beauty tip is several days late.  Exams, graduation and moving home have been pretty hectic! Since it’s summer and swim suit season, several of us have weight loss on read more
