Harlow is a 1965 biographical film directed by Gordon Douglas. It is a movie adaptation of the best-seller written by John Michael Hayes. It follows the intense and controversial life of movie star Jean Harlow (Carroll Baker). The film depicts the career ascension of the unforgettable blonde girl, from insignificant roles and small jobs to stunning performances that made her a celebrity and a sex symbol. She started with roles in low-budget comedies until discovered by Arthur Landau (Red Buttons), who starts believing in her potential and becomes her agent. Despite maintaining the appearance of a happy and shiny girl, her personal life was a disaster. Her only refuge was acting and public life, where she was a sparkling novelty in the industry, with her pretty girl-next-door image. She prematurely died of kidney disease at the young age of 26, remaining in people's memories as a forever young, all-American beauty. The film was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor (Red Buttons).moreless
