Jean Harlow, born Harlean Harlow Carpenter and nicknamed the Platinum
Blonde, was a Hollywood temptress. The 1931 movie "The Platinum Blonde" was
the perfect vehicle to bring the glamorous miss Harlow to the attention of
the fledgling talking pictures audience. At the release of this film, Jean
Harlow was only twenty years of age and already divorced, something that
would come to pass on another two occasions in her short 26 - year life.
Her death in 1937 was a controversial affair, with one school of thought
being that her mother, a Christian scientist, would not allow her daughter
proper medical treatment. Other possible causes of death suggested were
alcoholism, venereal disease, a screwed up abortion and even poison from her
platinum hair dye. Ultimately, however, it has generally been accepted that
kidney failure was the cause of the death of an enchanting lady who lived
her life in the fast lane.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
