Past Glam: Jean Harlow Photoplay Cover 1931

Isn't this picture beautiful? Jean Harlow was at the top of the box office and at the height of her glamour in 1931, at the age of just 20. Only a few years later, in 1937, she died suddenly of kidney failure at the age of 26. She was the original blonde bombshell, without whom the long line of blondes who followed might never have come to be, including Marilyn Monroe, who watched her movies as a little girl.
