Evening @ the Barn - Jean Harlow in Hollywood
The world didn't call Jean Harlow the Blonde Bombshell for no reason. She was the first Hollywood sex symbol, the Platinum Blonde, the mold for every famous blonde superstar who hit the big screen. Yes, even Marilyn Monroe followed Harlow's lead. In her short decade in Hollywood, Harlow created a new genre of movie star. Her fans idolized her for her peerless image and her gorgeous façade.

Darrell Rooney and Mark Vieira, co-authors of the best-selling book "Harlow in Hollywood" will host a power-point presentation loaded with photos and anecdotes about Harlow including insights into her short-lived marriage to Paul Bern and the mystery surrounding his untimely death.

Artifacts, costumes and memorabilia will be on display in the museum lobby. There will also be a special screening of one of Harlow's feature films along with the opportunity to win DVD's of her movies in our $1 raffle!
