About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for JEAN HARLOW (1931).

Description:

Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) double weight glossy sepia-tinted silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Before awarded her MGM contract in 1932, Jean Harlow bounced from studio to studio, loaned out by mentor Howard Hughes. She worked for five different studios in 1931, and, though this still has the typed line on the back "Jean Harlow, Universal Star," she was at the studio for just one film, IRON MAN. Pre-Code images of Harlow are highly desirable, and pre-MGM portraits are very rare. Here, Harlow with her marcelled platinum blonde hair strikes a sexy, but elegant pose wearing a black satin dress. This is still number 23. FINE. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Universal, 1931. No Binding. Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy sepia-tinted silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Lew Ayres, Robert Armstrong, Jean Harlow, John Miljan, dir: Tod Browning; Universal. The film, directed by the legendary Tod Browning, was about a young lightweight boxer (Ayres) whose gold digging wife leaves him for Hollywood once he fails. When he becomes successful she is back and, along with her lover, makes plans to take his money. The fact that Jean Harlow played a tramp was telegraphed loud and clear throughout the W. R. Burnett story. Very rarely is this film shown. This full length image (still no. 12) of the iconic blonde bombshell exudes her sexiness and elegance as she poses in a satin gown on a photography set which today can be described as Art Deco. NEAR FINE. Seller Inventory # 10105
