In this Hollywood-on-Hollywood satire, Harlow plays a wise-cracking movie star (dubbed “the bombshell”) operating out of a Beverly Hills mansion which she never leaves without her three English sheepdogs and two Negro maids. Her stabs at a refined existence are continually thwarted by a peripatetic publicity agent whose antics are hilariously performed by Lee Tracy. Bombshell remains, with Red Dust, China Seas and Libeled Lady, one of Harlow's best MGM vehicles.
