Jean Harlow 100th Anniversary Collection
Jean Harlow, platinum blonde goddess of the silver screen, must have been exactly the kind of movie star that the early '30s needed.

A true trend-setter, the first “Platinum Blonde” provided the template for an archetype that stretches from one century into the next - to Marilyn to Madonna to Gwen Stefani and beyond. She was earthy and sexy, just a little bit naughty but also possessing a sense of humor and a need for acceptance that most everyone can identify with - then and now. True film buffs owe it to themselves to celebrate, discover, or rediscover her achievements as an actor.

This set shows off Harlow's warmth, humor, and versatility in a variety of roles that reflect MGM's often ill-advised attempts to update or modify the lady's image. The movies in this set pair off Harlow with some of the biggest leading men of that time - Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant, William Powell, Robert Taylor and Franchot Tone (four times!). Still, these are leading lady vehicles through and through. For Harlow fans, it's a treat.
