The only thing this movie gets right are Jean's name and the name of her second husband, Paul Bern.

Audience Reviews for Harlow


Two version of Jean Harlow's life came out the same year, both junk! This is the cheapjack version with Lynley completely wrong in the lead. Ginger unsurprisingly comes off best. Just hope nobody does this to you when you're gone!
