Let's have a look at some of the beautiful photos from Saratoga (1937).  Taken at face value, Saratoga is not a spectacular film. It has become infamous because it was Jean Harlow's final film--in fact she died of kidney failure before it was completed, at the young age of 26. When it came time to take publicity photos for the film, Jean was so weak she could hardly hold herself up. That is why in these beautiful pictures, Jean is laying down, leaning on Clark or being held up by him.
