Happy Birthday: Clara Bow!

Clara Bow (July 29, 1905 – September 27, 1965), came to personify the roaring twenties and is described as its leading sex symbol. She performed in 46 silent films and 11 talkies she was best known for her performance in: Mantrap (1926), It(1927) and Wings (1927). She was named first box-office draw in 1928 and 1929 and second box-office draw in 1927 and 1930.

After marrying actor Rex Bell in 1931, Bow ended her career in 1933 with the film "Hoop-La", becoming a rancher in Nevada.

  1. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't seen anything with her, but I really want to.

  2. Thanks for sharing the video. So charming! I love how kind and appreciative Louise Brooks always was when she spoke of Bow.

  3. Lesya Hearst, I hope you get an opportunity soon. You might be able to find on of her movies on you-tube.

    KC, I know how much you love Clara Bow.
