Refusing to descend to the casting couch for work, she finds that she is soon blacklisted from the industry. But an agent named Arthur Landau (Red Buttons) sees something in Jean and begins representing her. For a long time, the jobs are scarce and consist mostly of receiving the pie in the face in low budget comedies. But Arthur’s belief in Jean never wavers and when she finally graduates to featured roles, the critics say that she cannot act, but she is unforgettable. Polishing the image as the girl next door, but with some fire, she begins her climb to the top and becomes the girl every woman wants to look like and every man wants to have. But her own life is a disaster – unlike her screen life.
Plot: Hollywood drama loosely based on the life of film actress Jean Harlow, with Carroll Baker in the title role. One of two feature film biographies, both released in 1965 and both with the same title, about the ’30s platinum blonde movie star.

This is MGM. Messy gaudy movie.
Everything about this big-budget how Lawless biography of Jean Harlow rings false and it ends up being one of the biggest fiasco’s of the 1960’s. Two movies about Harlow in 1965, both horrible, but this one takes the cake because they put the time and money into it and other than a luscious atmosphere with great sets, costumes and props resembling the 1930’s, the Hollywood of the 1960’s through the mood fails to make the Hollywood of the 1920’s and 30’s look anything real, starting with its leading lady and certainly with the biggest blames pointed towards the script, the direction and the editing. During this time, movie producers made a lot of films about the notorious gangsters and they never captured the era they were set in. You’d think they get a story of the movie industry right. Wrong.

In 1965, Carroll Baker won a collective Award of the worst performances of the year for film she had even made the year before. Obviously, she was being over promoted by Paramount, and as Harlow, she comes nowhere close to being one of MGM’s most prized stars, one that fell too soon. Afraid of upsetting MGM which had financial issues at the time and could have easily sued, they only keep a few names right, with even Louie B. Mayer only represented through a pseudonym played by Martin Balsam. Mayer was long dead as were many of the other characters involved in Harlow’s life, and they didn’t even get one right outside her mother and stepfather and producer Paul Bern, played by Peter Lawford for managers to come off with his dignity attached.

There’s pity for Angela Lansbury as Harlow’s mother, and she should have been able to play the notorious character as sort of a Mama Rose type like she would later in a revival of “Gypsy” on Broadway. She doesn’t even get one juicy moment, and this part should have been a natural for her. At one point, Harlow is meeting with the press and making wisecracks that sounds something like Gypsy Rose Lee would say while stripping. It rings completely Falls and is totally embarrassing. Raf Vallone as the stepfather is certainly sleazy, but extremely one-dimensional and just creepy. Even creepier is Leslie Nielsen as one of many lecherous men she encounters, fortunately because of his reputation later in his career for comedy, his scenes come off as silly even what he’s doing onscreen is reprehensible as he attempts to rape her.

Red Buttons is annoying as always as a wisecracking press agent, making me wish that Lee Tracy who played Harlow’s press agent in “Bombshell” was available to play the part. Mike Connors as a Clark Gable like movie star named Jack Harrison is just horrible. Recreations of some alleged silent comedy scenes are totally unfunny, and none of Harlow’s iconic films are mentioned by name. Everything is fictional except the star, but you need to star to play a star and even with an Oscar nomination for “Baby Doll”, Carroll Baker here is not a star. Even the most wretched of the TV movies based on the Hollywood stars of the 30’s and 40’s at least got the general facts right. They might as well have called her Jeanette Barlow in this movie for all the reality is that it is the life of a star who is still popular through reruns of her films on cable and their availability on DVD.
