Red Headed Woman posterBoyer and Jean Harlow

Red-Headed Woman (1932) was Jean Harlow's first starring vehicle, and Boyer agreed to take the small part as her chauffeur because it was an opportunity to work at the most prestigious of all the studios, MGM. 

And, in a manner of speaking, he gets the girl, too: when Harlow's saucy shopgirl fails to win acceptance in hubby Chester Morris' snobby social circle, she runs off with her chauffeur!

The film was a hit and made Harlow a star, and although Boyer's role was not a large one, it did begin to give him an identity with the American public.
