MORE INFO ON CARY GRANT: Once told by an interviewer, "Everybody would like to be Cary Grant," Grant is said to have replied, "So would I." His early years in Bristol, England, would have been an ordinary lower-middle-class childhood except for one extraordinary event. At age nine, he came home from school one day and was told his mother had gone off to a seaside resort. The real truth, however, was that she had been placed in a mental institution, where she would remain for years, and he was never told about it (he never saw his mother again until he was in his late 20s). He left school at 14, lying about his age and forging his father's signature on a letter to join

's troupe of knockabout comedians. He learned pantomime as well as acrobatics as he toured with the Pender troupe in the English provinces, picked up a Cockney accent in the music halls in London, and then in July 1920, was one of the eight Pender boys selected to go to the US. Their show on , "Good Times," ran for 456 performances, giving Grant time to acclimatize. He would stay in America. wanted Grant for (1933) because she saw his combination of virility, sexuality and the aura and bearing of a gentleman. Grant was young enough to begin the new career of fatherhood when he stopped making movies at age 62. One biographer said Grant was alienated by the new realism in the film industry. In the 1950s and early 1960s, he had invented a man-of-the-world persona and a style--"high comedy with polished words." In (1955), he and were allowed to improvise some of the dialogue. They knew what the director, , wanted to do with a scene, they rehearsed it, put in some clever double entendres that got past the censors, and then the scene was filmed. His biggest box-office success was another Hitchcock 1950s film, (1959) made with since Kelly was by that time Princess of Monaco.

MORE INFO ON JEAN HARLOW: Harlean Carpenter, who later became Jean Harlow, was born in Kansas City, Missouri, on March 3, 1911. She was the daughter of a successful dentist and his wife. In 1927, at the age of 16, she ran away from home to marry a young businessman named Charles McGrew, who was 23. The couple pulled up stakes and moved to Los Angeles, not long after they were married, and it was there Jean found work as an extra in films, landing a bit part in

(1928). From that point on she would go to casting calls whenever she could. In 1929 she had bit parts in no less than 11 movies, playing everything from a passing woman on the street to a winged ballerina. Her marriage to McGrew turned out to be a disaster--it lasted barely two years--and they divorced. The divorce enabled her to put more of her efforts into finding roles in the movie business. Although she was having trouble finding roles in feature movies, she had more luck in film shorts. She had a fairly prominent role in 's (1929). Her big break came in 1930, when she landed a role in ' World War I epic (1930), which turned out to be a smash hit. Not long after the film's , Hughes sold her contract to MGM for $60,000, and it was there where her career shot to unprecedented heights. Her appearance in (1931) cemented her role as America's new sex symbol. The next year saw her paired with in 's (1932), the second of six films she would make with Gable. It was while filming this picture (which took 44 days to complete at a cost of $408,000) that she received word that her new husband, MGM producer , had committed . His death threatened to halt production of the film, and MGM chief had even contacted to replace Harlow if she were unable to continue, a step that proved to be unnecessary. The film was released late in 1932 and was an instant hit. She was becoming a superstar. In MGM's glittering all-star (1933) Jean was at her comedic best as the wife of a ruthless tycoon () trying to take over another man's () failing business. Later that year she played the part of Lola Burns in director 's hit (1933). It was a Hollywood parody loosely based on her real-life experience, right down to her greedy stepfather. In 1933 Jean married cinematographer , a union that would only last eight months. In 1935 she was again teamed with Gable in another rugged adventure, (1935) (her remaining two pictures with Gable would be (1936) and (1937)). It was her films with Gable that created her lasting legacy in the film world. Unfortunately, during the filming of (1937), she was hospitalized with uremic poisoning. On June 7, 1937, she died from the ailment. She was only 26. The film had to be finished by long angle shots using a double. Gable said he felt like he was in the arms of a ghost during the final touches of the film. Because of her death, the film was a hit. Record numbers of fans poured into America's movie theaters to see the film. Other sex symbols/blonde bombshells have followed, but it is Jean Harlow who all others are measured against.
