No Clara Bow has not been forgotten by those of us who actually like film!
Clara Bow was beautiful. Seen the doc on bbc4 before - very interesting but sad. Think I've seen at least one of her films at cinema.

While Marilyn Monroe never starred as Cleopatra on screen, she was made up as Theda Bara as Cleopatra from the 1917 silent film in a LIFE Magazine spread called “Fabled Enchantresses”, in which the legendary star paid homage to some of the world's great actresses. Photographed by the great Richard Avedon, Monroe was also costumed as Lillian Russell, Clara Bow, Jean Harlow and Marlene Dietrich.

William Clark Gable (February 1, 1901 – November 16, 1960) was an American film actor, often regarded as The King of Hollywood or just simply as The King. Gable began his career as a stage actor and appeared as an extra in silent films between 1924 and 1926, and progressed to supporting roles with a few films for MGM in 1931. The next year he landed his first leading Hollywood role and became a leading man in more than 60 motion pictures over the next three decades. Gable was arguably best known for his role as Rhett Butler in the epic Gone with the Wind (1939), for which he received his third nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor. He was also nominated for leading roles in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), and he won for It Happened One Night (1934). Gable found further success commercially and critically with films like Red Dust (1932), Manhattan Melodrama (1934), San Francisco (1936), Saratoga (1937) Boom Town (1940), The Hucksters (1947) Homecoming (1948) and The Misfits (1961) which was his fi ...

Alice White (Aug 24, 1904, Paterson, New Jersey – Feb 19, 1983, Los Angeles, California) American film actress. She was born Alva White of French and Italian parents. Her mother, a former chorus girl died when Alice was only three years old. She attended Roanoke College in Virginia and then took a secretarial course at Hollywood High School also attended by future actors Joel McCrea and Mary Brian. After leaving school she became a secretary and "script girl" for director Josef Von Sternberg. After clashing with Von Sternberg, White left his employment to work for Charlie Chaplin, who decided before long to place her in front of the camera. Her bubbly and vivacious persona led to comparisons with Clara Bow, but White's career was slow to progress. After playing a succession of flappers and gold diggers, she attracted the attention of the director and producer Mervyn LeRoy who saw potential in her. Her first sound films included Show Girl (1928) made in the Vitaphone sound-on-disc system, and Show Girl . ...

On this date in 1929 the first Academy Awards ceremony was held. Tickets cost $5 and 270 people attended. The glamour and glitz of Hollywood gathered at the Roosevelt To hold the first Academy award, I wonder how winners felt. With Douglas Fairbanks as the host, they all had dinner too. Best picture, - Wings - an action flick about fliers up in the blue. It was Gary Cooper's first picture, and Clara Bow was the star, A story of loss and redemption all set in the War to end war. Back then all the pictures were silent, - no color, no special effects; Just body and facial expression, along with very real wrecks. Emil Jennings won for best actor, best actress was Janet Gaynor, No TV coverage or radio, awards back then were plainer. With this year's Oscars coming up, with gowns, and jewels, and red carpets. Those first awards prob'ly seem as remote as bones in La Brea Tar Pits.

It Released Starring Clara Bow Feb. 15th, 1933 : The Silent Movie "It" is released starring Clara Bow, the movie was a success with critics and the public turning the very young Clara Bow from a Movie Star into a legend and known from then on as the "It girl". The Movie was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
Sometime in the middle of 2005 I caught a really good flick called Secondhand Lions starring Robert Duvall and Michael Caine. In a nutshell it’s a story of a young boy who is dumped on the doorstep of his two eccentric uncles while his mom takes off to find herself a man. On the way to the uncles’ house the mom tells the boy rumors of the uncles hidden wealth, and stories of them being bank robbers. The boy is dropped off, and he and the uncles are not wild about each at first, but slowly it all comes around. The script is somewhat predictable. Later that week my dad stops by to see my son (who is about a year old at this point), I tell him about the movie, thought it would be something he would dig, as he always had a fondness for movies where the lead character was crotchety and unlikable. Cobb (starring Tommy Lee Jones) was his favorite film. So I summarized the flick, two crazy hunter uncles, a young boy dropped in the middle of nowhere. My dad then looks at me and says, “That’s like my life. ...

And saving the best for last, of course I couldn't possibly do a Silent Beauties Week without the one and only Miss Clara Bow!

It was weird trying to watch I love lucy in color I guess I'm so use to it be in black and white..I do love some old classic movies from back in the day.. the other day I was watching a movie with clara bow in it.. I love Jean Harlow I be trying to see a movie with her in it I also like to see a carole lombard movie and I also like my handsome cary grant he sure was handsome in his day too.. wow people back in time sure know how to dress and the lol the hairstyles love them.. but it just *** how there personal lives be it be intersting reading up on some of these stars and the child stars how they be treated after they are all grown up and some of them still be doing good when they get older I don't know maybe sometimes being typecasted I don't know if it is a good thing in some situations
FB wants to know what's on my mind. Do you really FB? The dark frenetic recesses of my quagmire of a mind? Well here's whats on my mind, and i imagine only a few very close to me will read this, as most will bemoan, oh no, another inane, rambling soliloquy that seem to plague this woman with insomnia in her predawn hours. I feel as if I were born in the wrong time period. I have always been an old soul trapped inside a once youthful body. When I was 20, I got a perm in my hair because I wanted to look like Clara Bow. I'm betting not even the oldest person on here knows who she is. Now how do I segue into what I wanted to write, for it has nothing to do with the aforementioned. I was a young teen in the 1970's, but even now I miss that decade. I was watching the movie Bullit with Steve McQueen and it might have been made in the late 60's, I'm not sure. But sometimes I long for the gritty look of the film from that era, when action packed scenes were happening with car chases and crashes were really happeni ...
It's funny when you grow up hearing about Clara Bow and Rudolph Valentino... their sexual allure... Then you see their movies... and you absolutely DO see what the fuss was all about.

Elaine Petrocelli from the Book Passage visited Ronn to give her annual book recommendations for the holidays. If you're headed to the stores, here's what you should grab: THE CIRCLE by Dave Eggers $27.95 Mae’s dreams come true when she gets a job at The Circle, a powerful tech firm that controls over 90% of the social media and online shopping.

Voice Actor of the Day: Mae Questel. While mostly known for two voices, they are both iconic-- Betty Boop and Olive Oyl. She also did the voice of Little Audrey and Casper, the Friendly Ghost. She began as a vaudeville impressionist, doing Fanny Brice, Marlene Dietrich, Eddie Cantor, Mae West, and Maurice Chevalier. She based Betty Boop on flapper singer Helen Kane and actress Clara Bow (on both of whom animation pioneer Max Fleischer based the look and behavior of the character). Questel even voiced Boop in Roger Rabbit. Olive Oyl, she based on ZaSu Pitts.

my intro to Clara Bow was this picture. I had heard of her but never saw her, on film or in a picture, until i saw this image in a big movie photos book my uncle gave me. That was about 20 years ago. I still have it and in fact this is my own scan from that very picture.
I am hoping that someday a movie will be made about the life of Clara Bow. Not a trashy version based on scandals, but an insightful depiction of a life filled with enough tragedy and heartbreak to give those Greeks a run for their money. God knows this poor woman was exploited  enough in her lifeti
An introduction to the biggest, forgotten silent movie star, the wonderfully expressive Clara Bow.
Waking up this morning screaming all the way to Heaven Happy Birthday to my Angel Clara Bow Ingram! Still can't believe your not here, almost a year has passed and I miss you so much! Rest In Paradise ... I love you!!!
Clara Bow wearing a swastika in the 1920s (before Nazi atrocities) when the symbol was commonly used as a geometric design. Swastika-shaped ornaments date from the Neolithic period. An ancient symbol, the swastika is widely used in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. The Buddhists use it mostly on food packages to show that something is vegetarian. (The Buddhist swastika is straighter and more square.)

I had no idea that Phil Selznick -- yes, one of THOSE Selznicks -- ran the It Cafe after Clara Bow had moved on. He owned a couple of places on the Strip, including Mammy Louise's, which was operated by an African American woman named Louise Brooks. (Yes, Louise Brooks.) Her place at 8711 Sunset and another place he owned called Phil Selznick's down the street were raided for liquor violations late in 1938. Selznick kept his license but Louise lost hers. The next operators to take the space at 8711 Sunset were Theresa and Elmer Wheeler, who opened their upscale *** friendly bar Cafe Internationale there in early 1939.
I thought maybe you FlickChicks would like to read a letter written by today's birthday boy, Gilbert Roland, to Clara Bow. The letter was written in 1950. At this point, their romance had been over for more than 20 years. Gilbert was divorced from his wife, Constance Bennett, and she was living in Wiesbaden, West Germany, with their two daughters. Gilbert had not yet met his second wife, to whom he would remain married until his death in 1994. Clara had married actor Rex Bell in 1931. Because of Clara's many mental health issues, they were estranged, and Rex had custody of their two sons. They would remain married until Rex's death in 1961. Clara and Gilbert would correspond with each other until Clara's death in 1965. Here is a transcript of the letter. I hope no one minds me posting this, but I'm a hopeless romantic... "Hello Clarita Girl: I am truly sad that you don’t feel well. Sometimes when I go to church and I think of you, I say a prayer. It will be heard. God hears everything. You ...

Happy birthday to the dashing Gilbert Roland (December 11, 1905 - May 15, 1994). Born Luis Antonio Dámaso de Alonso in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, he had originally intended to become a bullfighter, like his father. Once his family moved to the United States, he became interested in acting after being asked to appear in a movie as an extra. Since his birth name was so long, he was asked to come up with a new one. He chose "Gilbert" and "Roland," for two of his favorite performers: John Gilbert and Ruth Roland. Roland's first major role was opposite Clara Bow in 1925's "The Plastic Age." They became involved and at one point were engaged, until Gary Cooper entered the picture. They remained friends until Clara's death, however, and Gilbert was writing to her up until a week before her death. He went on to appear opposite Norma Talmadge in 1927's "Camille," and soon he was her protege and lover. Norma's husband, Joe Schenck, took this in stride, and it was not unusual to see this odd trian ...

John Nash and jack kerowack.This is a list of people, living or dead, accompanied by verifiable source citations associating them with schizophrenia, either based on their own public statements, or (in the case of dead people only) reported contemporary or posthumous diagnoses of schizophrenia. Remember that schizophrenia is an illness that varies with severity. Regarding posthumous diagnoses: only a few famous people are believed to have been affected by schizophrenia. Most of these listed have been diagnosed based on evidence in their own writings and contemporaneous accounts by those who knew them. Also, persons prior to the 20th century may have incomplete or speculative diagnoses of schizophrenia.

Just finished Bill Bryson's "One Summer," a look at one small period in the U.S. with Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey, Sacco and Vanzetti, Clara Bow and "Wings, sound movies, Coolidge, and lots about daily life in that one snippet of time. A very good book.
Good to see google acknowledging edith Head's 116th birthday. those oscars in her hands show just how good she was at one of those easily overlooked jobs. Over 100 films dressing everyone from Barbara Stanwyck and Hedy Lamarr, Marlena Dietrich, Clara Bow and Jean Harlow - not to mention Veronica Lake, Liz taylor and Tippi Hedren (pictured) and countless others. A remarkable lady.
Great for Mary Pickford but not too good for Clara Bow who starred in "It."
I'm looking forward to a movie that's coming out next year called, "Return to Babylon". It's a movie about different stars of the 1920s exploring their lives and how some co-existed with each other. What's interesting about this is that they're going to great lengths to get that old feeling. It's being shot with a hand cranked camera, using music from the "roaring twenties" and it's being shot in black and white. Even more so the film 16mm black and white film, nineteen roles in total. Jennifer Tilly portrays Clara Bow who was a sex symbol like Jean Harlow. Other portrayals of famous 1920s stars include Rudolph Valentino, John Gilbert, Jean Harlow, Paramount Studios founder Adolph Zukor, Fatty Arbuckle, director, producer, screenwriter and actor Erich Von Stroheim, and many more. I personally am very happy to see a movie being made about the old days of Hollywood with such attention to detail in terms of bringing back that 1920s feeling. As of right now there is no release date except that it's co ...

The first table read for the stage production of "Coney Island Criminals" was a success! We open October.11th & will run for the rest of the month of October. The production is written & directed by *** Zigun, & will be starring Adam *** as "Al Capone", myself as "Frank Gallucio", Amanda Jencsik as "Clara Bow" & Elisa Marti as "Lena Gallucio", just to name a few! We could not have this production running so smoothly if it wasn't for Kate Dale, Marie Roberts & the entire crew at CIUSA! See you all in October for what promises to be a very unique take on gangster life!
