Clara Bow, Call Her Savage
As I’ve said before, when you watch a lot of old movies (especially if you cover all genres and all decades!), you pick up new favorites along the way. You’re going along, minding your own business, and BOOM, an actress or actor climbs over hundreds of other names and lands on sacred grounds…. your “ABSOLUTE favorites” or your “Top Ten.”
I’ve always liked Clara Bow, but she recently tromped up my list of favorite stars… curls bouncing fetchingly as she ascended.
Sometimes all it takes for like to grow into love is seeing just one more film… other times you have to see them in just the right role. For me, it was finally having the chance to see her in more than one film! Clara Bow films are hard to come by and they are RARELY shown on television.
I’ve also found that, very often, the more I learn about an actor or actress, the more I like them. Not only has seeing more Clara Bow films made me love her more, but reading about her colorful personality and vivaciousness has also endeared her to me even more.
If you haven’t had the chance to see Clara Bow films, I hope you will search them out. I have a feeling you’re going to love her as much as I do.
