Harlow: The Blonde Bombshell (1993)

*** (out of 4)

Sharon Stone hosts this 47-minute documentary about the life and career of 30s bombshell Jean Harlow. The film starts off talking about her early life and how she ended up in Hollywood. From here we learn about how she got her start in the business as well as much about her public life including her three marriages, the controversial suicide of her second husband and of course her early death at the age of 26. Through all the person stuff we see clips from her most famous films including HELL'S ANGELS, RED DUST, THE BEAST IN HEAT, RECKLESS, RED HEADED WOMAN and her final film SARATOGA among others. If you're a fan of Harlow then it's doubtful that you're going to learn anything here that you didn't already know. Some will probably attack this documentary for being so light on information, which might be a good point but this is certainly better than nothing. I'm sure one day the actress will get a full blown documentary but in the meantime this here isn't too bad. It was certainly fun seeing all of the film clips and it's rather amazing to see how much she actually got done in her early life. There's no question that she worked with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood history and her personal life was just as dramatic as anything MGM could have written up for a screenplay.
