    The death of Paul Bern is most often cited as a suicide, and history books chalk it up to his impotence This book examines the details of Bern s death such as the information hidden by MGM, including the fact that the was not impotent after all Marx, a friend of both Bern and his wife Jean Harlow, gathers the evidence and asserts that he was murdered The account is chronologically jumpy, and the author uses direct quotes which degrades the validity of the information a bit However, it brings up [...]

    This is an interesting novel for many reasons Although there is no real proof of his murder, certain methods the studio did to make successful cover ups to protect their star s reputation remains a fact of that era Once you learn of the facts that emerged years later and read what they believed to have actually happened during the time of Paul Burn s murder it starts to make a lot of sense This novel was very intriguing to say the least

    I have been intrigued with the story of Jean Harlow and her gay suicidal husband Paul Bern since I was a tween The blond sexpot forced into a loveless marriage by studio kingpins only to get tangled up in a web of mystery and murder is Hollywood Babylon s best Some say Bern died at his own hands resulting in poor self esteem that stemmed from his insecurities about his mediocre member Reports propose that he was never comfortable in the role he suddenly had to fulfill, that of a husband to Ameri [...]

    A really interesting read about a time when studios could do anything did it all really happen that way Marx made his case if everything he says is true.

    Wow, a well woven tell all that involves MGM, private dicks, Paul Bern and a very young Harlow And the first, sorta, Mrs Bern Ben Hecht was loud about Paul s apparent suicide Bern allegedly shot himself because he was impotent with Harlow, a death that Groucho Marx quipped something like, Poor fella, I know how he felt Same thing happened to me once In DEADLY IILUSIONS, there are quotes aplenty as Roddy McDowell gave it a Tsk, tsk and housekeepers and reporters all had a statement after hte fact [...]

    Great inside scoop from someone who was there at the time and even, if the author is to be believed, on site the day after the killing of Paul Bern Apart from the speculation and the revelation of new info, there is ample detail about the creation of the career of Miss Harlow and fascinating glimpses into her own all too brief life Remarkably little is said of Mr Bern s previous life in most accounts of the man and his death and even then, much of it is incorrect , but Mr Marx was his friend and [...]

    This is a fascinating topic a Hollywood producer s sudden death, possibly suicide, possibly murder at the hands of a former love, or possibly murdered by a young and glamorous starlet The author knew the producer and was there at the house within hours of the shooting But the book is horribly written with no real reasons for the conclusions it, at long last, draws I hope a real writer tackles this subject some day.

    Another take on the turbulent lives of Jean Harlow and her third husband, Paul Bern, who killed himself shortly after they were wed The mystery that surrounds Bern s death to this day is largely due to studio coverups.

    Karen Jones
    Book is about the death of Paul Bern, Jean Harlow s husband MGM covered up the crime, the thinking being that his murder would somehow taint Harlow s career, even though she wasn t involved Both writers knew Bern and Harlow.

    Laini
    So this case was always said to be suicide, but according to a Hollywood insider working years after the fact, Paul Bern was murdered by the woman who was his common law wife before Jean Harlow Not bad A juicy read for fans of old Hollywood.

    Elaine
