About a year ago, Warner Home Video released one of their "TMC Classic Film Collections" in honor of Jean Harlow and I reviewed that(as did many others) as a poor representation of this great star from Hollywood's Golden Era(1930's)considering that 2011 was her Centential year and she deserved much better treatment. I wasn't alone. Many Jean Harlow fans felt the same and voiced their opinions that her work at MGM(she made 16 films for that studio between 1931 and 1937) deserved at least a box set or even two. Well, the people at Warner must have been listening, because they have now released that box set titled: "Jean Harlow: 100th Anniversary Collection" thru their Warner Archive Collection. And that's the problem. While one could be thankful that the seven films in this collection cover her most important films, I have mixed feelings about this set after spending days watching these films(in the order that they were made). I suppose Warner Home Video considers this to be a companion set to the one listed above which would mean that eleven of her sixteen MGM Films are now available. If you factor in "Red Headed Woman"(one of Jean's best)from the "Forbidden Hollywood Collection, Vol.One" and "The Beast of the City" also available from the Warner Archives then you only have three films that have never been released: "The Secret Six", "Hold Your Man" and "Red Dust"(the most requested un-released title to date). This new box set resembles the "Signature Series" box sets that Warner has released in the past with such stars as Greta Garbo, Clark Gable,etc. and even boasts some extra studio picture cards.Read more ›

With so many of Jean Harlow's films - even gems such as "Bombshell" - still missing on DVD, fans have been hoping the long-promised boxed set would finally arrive this year. A boxed set of her own on pressed DVD to celebrate her one hundredth birthday. Instead, what we get are a few overpriced DVD-Rs in the Warner Archive series and this boxset - on DVD-R as well. Surely this is very bad taste. Shame on you, Warner! A few of these films ("Reckless", for example) have been available on DVD in Europe for a while - but not in the United States. Isn't it strange how the American cultural heritage is neglected by that company? Whoever is responsible for releasing this on DVD-R, must have written "unprecedented ignorance" as their main qualification on their application form. I don't like this product => only two stars. Jean Harlow deserves better than that.

Seeing so many so-called "Platinum Editions", it was deplorable that among them, there wasn't any good "Platinum Girl Edition" - until now!!! It was about time to honor Jean Harlow's Work which is now done with a 100th Anniversary Collection. This Collection features seven Harlow Classics formerly difficult to get in good quality: Bombshell (1933), The Girl From Missouri (1934), Reckless, Riff Raff (1935), Suzy (1936), Personal Property, Saratoga (1937). Some of them are rather weak movies, but even in those, Harlow is not only of a radiant and unique beauty, but offers a remarkably elaborated and distinguished performance which is worth watching. In other words, even a bad Harlow movie gives us the opportunity to see Harlow as a real actress and not only as a sex bomb. Every Harlow movie has some magic moments, and the magician is one of the most underrated actresses ever. And at least two movies ("The Girl From Missouri" and "Bombshell") are real Harlow Classics and much more than light comedies. For example, it's de-lightful, it's de-licious, it's de-lovely to watch "The Girl From Missouri" on a big screen, together with a true friend (and Harlow expert), and to discover how lavishly and thoroughly the props are designed in beautiful art deco style. "Riff Raff" is also a good movie, "Saratoga" is odd but offers a wonderful Jean Harlow (and a bad double in the last third, because Harlow died during production). I haven't seen the other three movies so far, but according to Harlow biographers (Bettina Uhlich, Curtis F. Brown), they are somehow mediocre but offer nevertheless a fascinating look at both Jeans beauty and her art of acting. As I have had the same impression of "Saratoga", I assume that this is true. A must-have for every Harlow nerd.

I am grateful for this set. "Bombshell" was Jean Harlow's favourite film (when she said this, I don't know) but it is a fast paced screwball comedy. Jean Harlow was an adept comedienne and she caught on quickly to the style of over-talking with Lee Tracey who had stage experience. This parody of Hollywood is the best film in the set. "Bombshell" is a pre-code film and most of Jean Harlow's finest films were during the pre-code era.
"The Girl From Missouri" is a most enjoyable comedy starring Jean Harlow, Franchot Tone, Patsy Kelly, and Lionel Barrymore. This was made after the Code and Jean Harlow plays a "good girl". This film, along with "Bombshell", are two films that have been remastered.
"Reckless" is a strange film. Jean plays a stage star purportedly loosely based on the Libby Holman scandal. It hits too close to home to Jean's own tragedy of her second husband's tragic death. She was married to MGM Executive Paul Bern whose death still remains a mystery. What is unusual about "Reckless" is that Jean plays a singer and dancer both of which she couldn't do at all. Her vocals are dubbed and her dancing leaves something to be desired. This melodrama was released after the Code was enforced so MGM Excutives were attempting to tone down her image. It is an enjoyable film in which Jean is ably supported by William Powell, Franchot Tone, Rosalind Russell and May Robson. Jean Harlow is so easy to watch that it is an enjoyable film. She also proves herself as a capable dramatic actress.
"Riffraff" places Jean is a fish factory who loves Spencer Tracy who portrays an arrogant fisherman. They shout a lot but, of course they do marry. Jean ends up in a reformatory as she did in "Hold Your Man" which Warner Brothers ought to release.
