SUMMARY Platinum Doll

Anne Girard ✓ 8 READ & DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Anne Girard SUMMARY Platinum Doll Ything a girl could want;a rich husband glamorous parties socialite friends;except an outlet for her talent But everything changes when a dare pushes her to embrace her true ambition to be an actress on the silver screen With her timeless beauty and striking shade of platinum blond hair Harlean becomes Jean Harlow And as she's thrust into the limelight Jean learns that this new world of. I ve longed admired Jean Harlow There s just something about her that is mesmerizing and infectious She was someone who seemed to glow from within While I am no expert and haven t seen all her films I still have an idea of who she might have been I was so excited for the opportunity to read Platinum Doll but as I was reading the thrill decreased until it was goneMs Girard s portrayal of Jean Harlow born Harlean Harlow Carpenter is hollow naive and full of wide eyed wonder at everything While I will buy the latter two to a certain degree I can t help feeling that Harlean was savvier and in control than described in the book She never grew in the book and yes there was lip service that she had but it wasn t felt Everything seemed to fall into her lap or it was dumb luck It never felt that Harlean had much gumption or incentive to go for it Now that s not something I believe is true Someone who takes on a dare dyes her hair a shocking platinum blonde and defies a controlling mother when she elopes isn t a person who stands back and allows things to happen to her No she makes them happenAs for the plot well most of it is devoted to her first marriage with Charles Chuck McGrew which was unfortunate as it was boring and redundant with basically the same thing happening over and over again Yawn Her mother Jean Harlow was shown as your typical stage mother which I don t doubt she was but I would also guess that their motherdaughter relationship was deeper and complicated than that written Not much is told about her work just brief glimpses and mentions Part of the problem was that it was just basic a to b to c telling Change the names and certain circumstances and this could be about any ingenue in the 20s and 30sI could go in depth but the book didn t so why should I I wish I d passed on Platinum Doll and watched the glamorous Jean Harlow at work or read a biography about her instead I appreciate what the author tried to do but the attempt failed to bring to life the vivacity of this fascinating woman 25 stars

Jean Harlow the effervescent MGM starlet of the 1930 s was known as both Platinum Doll and Platinum Blonde I knew very little about this woman even though her photos and name have maintained celebrity and recognition even after her untimely death at the age of twenty six from kidney failure This biographical novel does poetic justice to the young woman who moved from Missouri with her brand new husband Charles at the age of sixteen Blessed with a trust fund Charles sought to give his bride the home she wanted in Los Angeles where she had lived with her divorced mother who had dreams of becoming an actress As her husband dallied and drank with the local smart set Harlean McGrew her real name inadvertently was noticed by a casting agent in the Brown Derby Restaurant Jean Harlow was actually her mother s maiden name Her mother had enormous influence on her daughter aside from Harlean s rebellious act of wedding without approval As Harlean s career blossomed Charles insecurity and drinking increased the mother s interference became intrusive and the marriage became increasingly unstable Howard Hughes made Jean Harlow a notable star signing her to a pitifully low paying contract as he raked in huge profit from the film Hell s Angels Once MGM bought out her contract Harlow and Clark Gable became a favourite comedic film duo in many financially successful films Her marriage resulted in divorce She was an intelligent sassy and compassionate girl The girl Harlean was a bookworm reading The Odyssey for pleasure She was a uick study gifted with a fantastic memory and never a diva Although she had not intended to take up acting as she became invested in Jean Harlow the actress she became intent on success The novel is a uick read but satisfying biographical fiction The author has attempted to infer Jean Harlow s emotional reactions in some cases which blend smoothly with the overall picture given by her research I appreciated all of the historical information and her Acknowledgments where she clarified her research sources and slight deviations for impact which I believe to be very important for historical fiction of any type Four stars A gentle story of early Hollywood
