She made such an impact, through her film work and stories about her loveable personality and life challenges, that for the following 74 years she has remained unforgettable.
We remember and love her as Jean Harlow the movie star, but today I'd like to take you back to her roots, in Kansas City, MO.
The best way to do that is to share with you these two wonderful site links:
KansasCity.com offers archived news stories and photos about Jean from her hometown perspective.
JeanHarlow.info is a loving website created by the Carpenter side of her family, appropriately titled Jean Harlow Otherwise Known as Harlean Carpenter.
Happy 100th Birthday, Baby! We love, remember and honor you today and always. Thank you for being you.
