Today, Comet is remembering Jean Harlow on her 102 birthday, one of the most beautiful women to grace Hollywood.
“In the first sitting, I fell in love with Jean Harlow,” said photographer Charles Sinclair Bull. “She had the most beautiful and seductive body I ever photographed.”
Harlow paved the way for platinum blondes of the 1950s such as Mamie Van Doren and Marilyn Monroe. She died at the age of 26 in June 1937 of uremic poisoning brought on by acute nephritis.
“She was a square shooter if there ever was one,” Spencer Tracy said.
Harlow off the movie screen
Harlow was well known for slinky, white satin gowns. In April 2012, Time listed her as one of the top 100 fashion icons of all time.
Harlow and furry friends
It’s said Harlow was a lover of animals. On the day Rin Tin Tin died in 1932, jut a month shy of 14, Rinty was no longer strong enough to go to his master’s side. Harlow, who lived across the street, came over and cradled his head in her lap as he died. Years before Lee Duncan had given her one of Rinty’s first puppies.
Harlow in her mother
When Harlow died, her mother estate was left to her mother which worth roughly $1 million.
