When Jayne was lined up to star in the film Kiss Them For Me, both her agent Bill Shiffrin and director/friend Frank Tashlin heavily advised her not to do the film. Jayne herself also had doubts, but was persuaded into doing the film by its producer Jerry Wald. He told her that if she accepted the part then she’d be offered the lead in The Jean Harlow Story, a film about the life of the “Original Platinum Blonde” Jean Harlow. Obviously, the movie never materialized and it was later discovered that Jerry Wald had lied to Jayne, just to get her to do the part. She later commented on the subject saying: " I have thousands of letters here, from people all over the world, saying I am the perfect Harlow…even naturally have her mannerisms of caressing my body and arms in that way. But no, they can’t see me playing the dramatic side of Harlow’s life." She was extremely hurt by the fact that Fox had lied to her.

Fun fact: The reason why in many photos Jayne in noticeably sucking in, is because it was in her contract that she must always do so. It’s an odd thing to do contracted to do, but I suppose it serves as an example of just how controlling the studios were.
