Jean Harlow (March 3, 1911 – June 7, 1937) was an American film actress and sex 
symbol of the 1930s. She was 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.
