The wonderful Jean Harlow was so extraordinary in every role and possessed so much charisma, it’s often difficult to remember just how young she was when she took Hollywood by storm.
She was only 26 when she died in 1937 – a fact that always leaves me speechless. You can’t help but think of all the films and roles she could have tackled over the years.
If you’ve never seen her in Platinum Blonde, it’s absolutely a movie you need to see. She’s mesmerizing in every scene in a role she seems born to have played.
Platinum Blonde was directed by the legendary Frank Capra and also stars Loretta Young, Robert William, Halliwell Hobbes, and Reginald Owen.
You can watch Platinum Blonde on Prime Video (Amazon link).
