When Sally is removing her pajamas to give back to Lillian, the camera is constantly moving to keep the nudity out of the frame. However, when Sally removes her top and hands it to Lillian, you can easily see for a half second that Jean Harlow's right breast is covered by a flash-covered strapless half bra that conceals only the lower breast. (About 12 frames between 0:17:18 to 0:17:19 on the DVD.) See more »
Jean Harlow as a home-wrecker of the worst kind delivers her first great performance in Red-Headed Woman.All the men in her lives are pushovers easily manipulated by the films central character. Made before censorship came into effect in Hollywood, this movie is able to shock viewers even today.The greatest entertainment value of this movie is how naughty all the principal characters are.Sex is out in the open and immorality is the name of the game. Harlow seduces and wins Chester Morris.The sucker has not a chance and which man has when a beautiful woman pursues you.Henry Stephenson is quite good as the moral hypocritical businessman. Nice to see him play such a part. Even a young Charles Boyer has a small important part in his Hollywood bow.The ending is really the biggest surprise.
