Jean Harlow

Who was born on this date:

Actress Jean Harlow was born on March 3, 1911. She is best known as the sex symbol of the 1930s. Famous for her platinum blonde hair, she is ranked as one of the greatest movie stars of all time by the American Film Institute. Harlow starred in several films, mainly designed to showcase her magnetic sex appeal and strong screen presence, before making the transition to more developed roles and achieving massive fame under contract to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (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 on June 7, 1937 at age 26. She was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California in the Great Mausoleum.
