    Description

    Jean Harlow Personality Poster (MGM, 1930s). Poster (22" X 28").
    The original "blonde bombshell," Jean Harlow made her first screen appearance, as an uncredited extra, in 1928. By 1930, however, she became a star with her leading role in the Howard Hughes aviation epic, Hell's Angels. Shortly after the picture opened, Hughes sold Harlow's contract to MGM for $60,000, and her career really took off, with prestigious roles in such films as Platinum Blonde (1931), The Public Enemy (1931), and Red Dust (1932). For the next several years, she reigned as one of the top members of Hollywood's elite, but during the filming of Saratoga (1937), she contracted uremic poisoning and died on June 7 at the too-young age of 26. Her iconic status as one of Hollywood's leading sex symbols, lives on to this day. The stunning portrait poster offered here has pinholes in the corners, edge wear, tears in the top right and lower left, missing paper in the top right corner and in the left edge, a chip in the lower left corner, and a bend in the lower right corner. Restoration, including mounting on linen, has addressed many of these issues, making the piece highly attractive and utterly displayable. Harlow's beauty lives on in this classic poster, a poster that can be yours if you're the high bidder. Good/Very Good on Linen.
