In this witty romp, Jean Harlow plays an upper-crust socialite who bullies her reporter husband (Robert Williams) into conforming to her highfalutin ways. The husband chafes at the confinement of high society, though, and yearns for a creative outlet. He decides to write a play and collaborates with a fellow reporter (Loretta Young); the results are unexpectedly hilarious, especially when Young shows up at the mansion with a gaggle of boozehound reporters in tow. With snappy, ribald dialogue (allowable in those pre-Hays Code days), Capra keeps the gags flying fast and furious, taking special delight in having Williams's journalist pals rib him endlessly over his kept-man status. Platinum Blonde was a great success at the time of its release during the class-conscious Depression; for better or worse, its star Harlow was identified with the tag "platinum blonde" until her untimely death. --Jerry Renshaw
De Oro Puro is a Venezuelan telenovela that was produced by and seen on Venezuela's Radio Caracas Televisión. Julio Cesar Mármol came up with the idea for De Oro Puro. José Antonio Mendez was the general producer, Jhonny Pulido was the executive producer, and Rafael Suarez was the director. De Oro Puro lasted 113 episodes and was distributed internationally by RCTV International. De Oro Puro is better known for having been a notorious flop in the history of Venezuelan television, which was worsened by being broadcast in the same time slot that was previously occupied by the very popular and long lasting Por Estas Calles. Despite the production values and the big names behind the series, the public became confused by the complicated plot and storyline, and the ratings were poor. It has been postulated that De Oro Puro contributed to the downfall of RCTV in late 1990s. RCTV publicised De Oro Puro, in an effort to attract viewers, but these efforts failed. When the plot become more confusing and the ratings further lowered, the channel aired a series of shorts where famous first actress Amalia Pérez Díaz resumed and explained the plot in a didactic way. This effort backfired when people began to perceive De Oro Puro as being difficult to understand to the extent that it had to be explained, and Ms. Pérez Días' apparitions became the subject of mockery.
This story is based on a true story of the singer of Colombian popular music Helenita Vargas, better known as "La Ronca de Oro".
