Throughout the film, Jean wears a star sapphire ring, a sort of engagement ring from her boyfriend William Powell. See more »
When Crystal comes down the stairs she has a black silk handkerchief in her hand. She then kneels on the side of the sofa and starts talking to someone with the black handkerchief still in her hand. After the end of the talk she tosses the black handkerchief away and it falls to the floor. Then when the camera cuts back to her it's back in her hand again. See more »
Jean Harlow received a ring from beau William Powell when this film was in production. She wears it at nearly every turn, except during the dish washing scene.
Miss Harlow's wearing of the ring and incorporating it into the actions of the character she's playing seems very significant. It's a personal validation of who she is and what she's worth.
There is a moment where Robert Taylor asks her in the film about her plans to marry, and it is clear that when replying, Harlow is not the character in the story, but her real self, commenting on her own plans to marry Powell. Unfortunately, that did not happen, but we know that she had been given not only a ring, but the gift of real love. And it's great to watch that in this film.
