Find this and other reviews at first experience with author Anne Girard took place in 2014 when I read Madame Picasso The book impressed me and played a large part in prompting my interest in Platinum Doll I knew next to nothing about Jean Harlow when offered an advanced reader s edition of the book but I love old Hollywood and knew I d enjoyed Girard s style of writing Long story short I accepted the offer and uickly lost myself in Girard s interpretation of Jean s story The narrative itself follows Jean s life from 1927 to 1932 covering the course of her marriage to Charles Chuck McGrew and the rise of her professional career Girard emphasizes the tumultuous relationship of a young couple who don t see eye to eye and a domineering mother who is hell bent on vicariously living her dreams through the success of her only child Historically I found the novel illuminating but I feel the strength of the narrative is in Girard s illustration of these relationships and the emotion turmoil they create in JeanChuck was a hard character for me personally but my struggle to appreciate him highlighted how realistically he d been written There is a painful authenticity to him but at the end of the day I felt his character added much to the narrative I found Mother Jean eually difficult and on than one occasion I found myself wishing someone would slap her across the face but even here I felt Girard s ability to manipulate my emotions spoke to her abilities as a storyteller Last but certainly not least I found Jean both complex and endearing Her personality is sweet and I felt the candid nature of Girard s illustration inviting There is a certain ambiguity to her professional motivations but I greatly appreciated her character just the same Atmospherically I think the novel uite fun Girard takes her readers into the offices of Howard Hughes onto the back lots of MGM and into the famed glamour of The Brown Derby Several golden age and silent film star enjoy cameo roles in the narrative but I felt the most notable were those minor scenes featuring Clark Gable Unlike Harlow I ve studied the actor and saw a spark in Girard s rendering of his personality and personaWhen all is said and done I feel the time I spent with this piece rewarding Platinum Doll is a striking and poignant illustration of a remarkable young woman An irresistible novel that effortlessly evokes the glamour and sophistication of Hollywood during its Golden Age

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
