Past Exhibit: Jean Harlow: The Legend
Jean Harlow: The Legend
The Hollywood Museum salutes Jean Harlow’s legendary career with an exhibit of memorabilia saluting the original “Platinum Blonde” and “Blonde Bombshell” who defined glamour and sex appeal during the early days of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Harlow was born on March 3, 1911 and died tragically of kidney disease at age 26 in 1937. During her brief career she reigned as a queen of the silver screen and has since been named one of 50 greatest stars in the history of Hollywood by Entertainment Weekly.
“The Hollywood Museum in the Historic Max Factor Building is the perfect place to salute Jean Harlow’s life since it’s where she often went for hair and makeup treatments from Mr. Factor,” says Museum President Donelle Dadigan. “It’s where she became the Blonde Bombshell.”
