Lola Burns is at the top of the pile in Hollywood. But life ain’t easy, what with her father and brother always hanging around for handouts, and devious studio publicity honcho Space Hanlon cooking up endless lurid newspaper stories.

You have to wonder why Marilyn Monroe would choose Jean Harlow as a role model. Not because Harlow isn't talented. They both have great comedic timing. It's just that their fates were so similar, and their lives were quite difficult. This really showcases Harlow's talent, and it has a great supporting cast, including the Wizard of Oz himself.
A pretty solid pre-Code comedy. Great supporting cast here. Not really much to say, other than this kind of biopic alledgedly based on Clara Bow and her money grubbing family is quite funny. The only weak link really is Ted Healy. Never been a fan of him, or his treatment of the Stooges when they worked for him. Thankfully his presence isnt felt often. 4 stars
