Harlow (1965)

Red Buttons as "Arthur Landau"

In this fictionalized biopic inspired by the brief life of the 1930s screen siren Jean Harlow (Carroll Baker), Harlow arrives in Los Angeles as a teenager, pushed into showbiz by her mother (Angela Lansbury) and stepfather (Raf Vallone). Kindhearted agent Arthur Landau (Red Buttons) becomes Jean's mentor, while a devious Howard Hughes-like mogul (Leslie Nielsen) grows infatuated with the beautiful young actress. Harlow herself falls for producer Paul Bern (Peter Lawford) before tragedy strikes.
