Description
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

Dinner At Eight
You're invited to a sparkling all-star peek into the lives of the troubled and troublemaking Who's Who coming to a posh Manhattan party, led by Jean Harlow, Marie Dressler, John and Lionel Barrymore, Wallace Beery and more. George Cukor directs.

Libeled Lady
When society diva Myrna Loy sues newsman Spencer Tracy for libel, he enlists fiancee Harlow and buddy William Powell in a scheme involving a rigged marriage, a phony seduction, a funny fishing scene, fisticuffs and, eventually, true love for all.

China Seas
A rugged captain (Clark Gable) sails perilous waters with a fortune in British gold. That's not the only risky cargo he carries. Both his fiery mistress (Harlow) and refined fiancee (Rosalind Russell) are aboard! Wallace Beery also stars.

Wife Versus Secretary
Businessman Clark Gable relies on secretary Harlow - too much. according to wily wife Myrna Loy. James Stewart adds to the star-bright comedy/drama as Harlow's beau.

    Comments about this product:

    I like to imagine that someday soon I will have seen enough of all the classic actors to say I know who the best are from every different hollywood era. Harlow is clearly near the top of that list. Although very quick witted, I' ve noticed she didn't need dialogue to portray her character's point of view. Often, either a glance with her eyes, or a gesture were all she had to do to show the audience her state of mind. I would label her clever and funny.

        Comments about this product:

        I watch Jean Harlow movies (among other oldies) mainly with my 21-year-old daughter to impress upon her the art of great cinema without nudity, severe language, and other such additives that have been unfortunately accepted in the movie making process over the past several decades. It is important to me for my children and family members to develop their minds by actual usage. In viewing TCM, it gives one an opportunity to exercise their brain by implementing their imagination and creativity, not to mention releasing those "feel good" motor-neurons due to laughing or experiencing genuine emotion.

          This is so nice I can take the DVD with me on the road as I have a portable DVD player. I am a huge movie buff and LOVE this era. I like that I can watch these movies with ANYONE young as well as old. Unlike movies of todays age where I have to be careful what I watch with young kids. BRING BACK THE GOOD FILMS.

              Harlow was one of those totally unique actresses. No one could replace her. Judy Holiday is another. Once they're gone, that's it.
