This could have been better but was still worth seeing., 17 July 2011
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

Ouch....did Michael Bo hate this documentary! Well, I could see it had a few problems and I dislike Sharon Stone, but I still thought it was a pretty good documentary--and one well worth seeing.

Originally, this was made for Turner Classic Movies--and I saw it there when it debuted almost two decades ago. I just saw it again, as it was on of the special features included with the Jean Harlow film "Dinner at Eight".

The film is an overview of Jean Harlow's career as well as a discussion of her life. However, unlike most similar films, this one was made up of lots of clips and narration by Sharon Stone--but absolutely no interviews by anyone--no film historians or friends of the star. As a result, the emphasis seems to be more on Ms. Stone in all her very stylish and sexy gowns than on giving an in-depth analysis of Harlow--a bit of a mistake in retrospect. Despite this, it's still worth seeing but it's clearly far from one of the better celebrity biographies. Too bad, as Ms. Harlow was a very fascinating lady and deserved a bit better.
