Jean Harlow was the first platinum blonde that brought sexuality to the Hollywood scene. Her short career was highlighted by her starring roles in Red Dust with Clark Gable and Libeled Lady with Spencer Tracy. Harlow's untimely death at only 26 years old caused her to miss out on what could have been her biggest role, that which was filled by Fay Wray in King Kong.

This drink named after her is a simple sweet rum martini, supposedly a favorite of the actress.
