Jean Harlow (March 3, 1911June 7, 1937) was an American film actress and sex symbol of the 1930s. Known as the "Platinum Blonde" and "The Blonde Bombshell" for her famous platinum blonde hair. Harlow starred in several films, mainly designed to showcase her magnetic sex appeal and strong screen presence before transitioning to more developed roles and achieving massive fame under contract to MGM. Harlow's enormous popularity and "laughing vamp" image were in distinct contrast to her personal life, which was marred by disappointment, tragedy, and ultimately, her sudden death from renal failure at 26.
