About the event
ABOUT THE BOOK: – Jean Harlow. The name resonates. Platinum Blonde. Blonde Bombshell. The labels applied by press agents during Harlow's seven-year career carry a charge decades later. An actress who died in 1937 has currency in 21st-Century culture. Harlow’s films make new fans, whether in revival theaters, on cable television, or streaming at everyone’s pleasure. Vintage Harlow photographs sell for as much as $14,000, and camera negatives for as much as $50,000. Chat room fans debate the cause of her husband’s suicide and that of her own death. The movies’ first blonde sex symbol has become a legend, the very prototype of all the blonde icons who have followed, from Marilyn Monroe to Lady Gaga.
More than a century after Jean Harlow’s birth, Harlow expert Darrell Rooney and noted Hollywood historian Mark Vieira team to present the most beautiful—and accurate—book on Harlow ever produced. With more than 280 images, most never published, Harlow in Hollywood makes a case for Harlow as an Art Deco artifact in an iconic setting. Harlow in Hollywood is the first book devoted to both the Harlow image and the city that spawned it.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Darrell Rooney has amassed one of the world’s most significant collections of Jean Harlow photographs and memorabilia. A Hollywood insider, Rooney is an animator and director best known for the Annie Award-winning Lion King 2: Simba's Pride. Harlow in Hollywood is his first book. He resides in Los Angeles.
