Storyline

In this story, Harlow starts in the movies as set dressing, the pretty girl who is used for the glamour shots. Refusing to descend to the casting couch for work, she finds that she is soon blacklisted from the industry. But an agent named Arthur sees something in Jean and begins representing her. For a long time, the jobs are scarce and consist mostly of receiving the pie in the face in low budget comedies. But Arthur's belief in Jean never wavers and when she finally graduates to featured roles, the critics say that she cannot act, but she is unforgettable. Polishing the image as the girl next door, but with some fire, she begins her climb to the top and becomes the girl every woman wants to look like and every man wants to have. But her own life is a disaster - unlike her screen life. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

"Glossy" is the only good thing I can say ...
8 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is a bad movie, and as other posters commented, completely inaccurate.

The real Jean Harlow was not promiscuous.

The only enjoyable part of this movie was Carroll Baker's looks and personality. Though miscast, she looks great. The hairdos are STRAIGHT FROM THE mid-60s! They didn't have flips in the 1930s. (I am not surprised by this. In the Carpetbaggers (also Paramount), which takes place in the 20s and 30s Carroll Baker sports bubble flips and even a beehive hairdo!

Historical note: This role was promised to quite a few actresses to keep them in line. 20th Century Fox promised this to Jayne Mansfield as a reward for playing the same character in bad movies. Same thing with Paramount and Stella Stevens.
