Reckless ★★ 1935

Harlow, in a role originally intended for Joan Crawford, plays a showgirl coveted by a millionaire and secretly loved by her manager. Unfortunately, Harlow couldn't pull off the acting (much less the singing and dancing), although the plot strangely paralleled her own life. Songs include “Reckless,” “Ev'rything's Been Done Before,” “Trocadero,” “Hear What My Heart Is Saying” and “Cyclone.” 96m/B VHS . Jean Harlow, William Powell, Franchot Tone, May Robson, Ted Healy, Nat Pendleton, Rosalind Russell; D: Victor Fleming; C: George J. Folsey.
