When Funny People Die: Jean Harlow

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Sep 30, 2019

The Moment I Fell for Jean Harlow

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jul 16, 2014

I’ll admit that I didn’t get the appeal of Jean Harlow initially. I originally saw her in a portion of the film Bombshell, and thought it dull and her annoying.

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Dec 3, 2013

The first movie where I saw Jean Harlow was Red Dust (1932). I’d heard of Harlow, certainly, and knew of her reputation as a platinum blonde, but I’d never seen a single performance.
