    One thought on “Harlow in Hollywood: The Blonde Bombshell in the Glamour Capital, 1928-1937”

    1. What a stunner! This book is one of most gorgeous books I have read on Harlow. The photos are absolutely spectacular. I have collected Harlow films, books and stills for years so I have seen many, many photos and there were still ones included here that were new to me. The text is also very interesting--it manages to get across a fair amount of information without losing the wealth of photo treasures that Harlow left behind. The author does a really nice job in giving you a brief but fairly comp [...]

    2. This is the fourth book I've read about Jean Harlow, and although much of the information is a rehash of what I've read before, it is nonetheless well written and a fine tribute to a talented actress.The photographs are a nice touch. It is always satisfying to be able to see the extreme beauty of a star rather than just read about it. The interesting thing about this collection, though, is that there are quite a few candids which illustrate just how much the glamorous sex kitten image was in con [...]

    3. This is the perfect companion book to David Stenn's excellent BOMBSHELL: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF JEAN HARLOW. That book gave the in-depth story.Mark Vieira co-wrote this book with Darrell Rooney, and I loved Vieira's SIN IN SOFT FOCUS. This book doesn't disappoint, either. The reproduced photographs are exceptional and definitely add to the Harlow mystique. The text is more of a surface description when compared to the depth of Stenn's book, but it still provides an excellent overview.Jean Harlow' [...]

    4. This is one of the best pictorial biographies out there. The photos, text and design are all superb. A great introduction to the life and career of Jean Harlow.

    5. The Golden Age of Hollywood, which lasted from the early '30s to the early '60s, was a unique time in the history of American film. Not only were movies further developed due to the advent of sound, but this film era also saw the rise of the studio system and of the great stars that represented them. One of those great stars was the first platinum blonde, Jean Harlow. Harlow in Hollywood illuminates the star's years as an actress in Hollywood as well as her three marriages and her unexpected dea [...]

    6. This is the first book that I've read on Jean Harlow. And it won't be the last.And this is such a beautifully presented book to keep and enjoy over and over.I've always been a curious person for the history of Hollywood and a fan of Marilyn Monroe.So naturally I've always wanted to know about Jean Harlow.And this book is a wonderful starter. She was a very hard worker. But her mother had a complete control of her.That you wish someone had gotten involved and told her to back off of her daughters [...]

    7. GORGEOUS TRIBUTE TO HARLOW AND EARLY HOLLYWOOD.A beautifully put together coffee table book by the folks at Angel City Press, 'Harlow in Hollywood' is one classy tome that all film book lovers will cherish. The photos are simply stunning, the narrative accurate and informative and the design first rate.Great cover and I love the Hollywood Starland maps used in the inside covers.Not necessarily a huge Harlow fan myself but I love books on early Hollywood and this is one of the best. If, however y [...]

    8. Wow! Everything about this book is gorgeous. The authors definitely paid attention to every detail. I'm so glad I picked this up because it is an absolute treasure.
