Are You a Blonde Bombshell?

Wife vs Secretary [13 Jan 2007|08:27pm]

dfordoom
Even way back in 1936 the plot of Wife vs Secretary was pretty hackneyed. The script is OK, but hardly inspired. And Clarence Brown’s direction is competent but unexciting. It really sounds like a movie with very little to recommend it, but it does have three very big things going for it. Those three things being its three stars - Myrna Loy, Clark Gable and Jean Harlow. They’re able to take fairly stock characters and bring them to life, and also to give them some real depth. You can’t help caring about what happens to these people. I was expecting a comedy but it’s really more of a romantic drama. Gable is a magazine publishing tycoon, Myrna Loy is his wife and Harlow is his indispensable secretary. Harlow is particularly good. Not really the blonde bombshell you might expect, she’s a hard-working and very competent career woman and really much more than just a secretary. She avoids most of the cliches that usually go along with the role of the “other woman” and brings some real dignity to her role. Wife vs Secretary isn’t a great movie but it’s decent entertainment.

Jean Harlow in Suzy (1936) [06 Jan 2007|12:33pm]

dfordoom
Suzy is a rather breathless 1936 romantic melodrama starring Jean Harlow, Cary Grant and Franchot Tone. Harlow is a chorus girl in 1914, on the lookout for husband material. She finds Terry (Franchot Tone, doing one of the most atrocious but entertaining Irish accents in all of cinema history). He isn’t rich, he’s an inventor working on aircraft, but she falls for him anyway. From this point on the plot gets steadily more ludicrous, with a dastardly but beautiful German spy and a handsome French air ace (Cary Grant mercifully resisting the temptation to attempt a French accent) entering the picture. There’s lot of bravery by the good guys of course. The aerial sequence were apparently outtakes from Howard Hughes’ 1930 film Hell’s Angels. Despite the corniness of the plot Suzy is a movie of considerable charm, mainly due to the sheer likeability of the leads. Harlow was always delightful playing a bad girl. This time she doesn’t get to play a bad girl, but she throws herself into her role with so much energy and enthusiasm that you can’t help falling in love with her. Suzy is a must for Harlow fans (and I’m very much a Harlow fan). If you’re not a Harlow fan in particular it’s still an entertaining movie so long as you don’t take it too seriously.

Happy 95th Birthday, Jean! [03 Mar 2006|01:37am]

lisaburks
Today marks what would have been Jean Harlow's 95th birthday. Hard to imagine, because she's been forever young on film for 69 years and counting.

I wonder what she would have done with her life, professionally or otherwise, if she'd had more than 26 years on this earth.


Harlean Harlow Carpenter, 1911


She never saw a television set, let alone watched one of her own movies on one via The Late, Late, Late Show, VHS or DVD.

I wonder what she would make of the world today, the way it keeps her alive.

Would she be amused at how much money her authentic autograph sells for? Opposed to the majority of letters and photos available that her mother signed on her behalf, in the same familiar handwriting seen on Harlean's birth announcement:




And what about this crazy thing called "The Internet" where people from around the world create web sites in her memory, post her photos, buy and sell her memorabilia as well as books written about her, show where she's buried, discuss her personal life and dissect her equally short and vibrant career?

Hmmmm.

I think that she'd find it all terribly amusing!

Which is one of the reasons why I count myself among her fans.

Happy *Heavenly* Birthday, Harlean!
