Happy Birthday, Clara! ♥ (29. July 1905 - 27. September 1965)

We did as we pleased. We stayed up late. We dressed the way we wanted. I used to whiz down Sunset Boulevard in my open Kissel, with several red Chow dogs to match my hair. Today, they’re sensible and end up with better health. But we had more fun.

10 Day Favourite People Challenge

Day 3 - Favourite actress and why? This wasn’t a hard chose to me. Clara Bow is the most lively person on screen! As a silent actress she could bring so many emotions to the screen like no one else and with no words at all, as a actress in talkies it even got better with her cute Brooklyn accent. Whether it’s comedy or tragedy, Clara Bow is an all round talent and the best actress ever lived.

Happy birthday Clara Bow! | July 29 1905 - September 27 1965.

"Fame hasn’t given me everything. I hope to marry some day. I would rather marry a man with a good disposition than a man who is good looking. I seldom dance in public for fear of causing comment. Picture people should keep their married lives private. Some day I want to direct my own pictures. I am afraid of love."

Clara Gordon Bow (July 29, 1905 – September 27, 1965) was an American actress who rose to stardom in the silent film era of the 1920s. It was her appearance as a spunky shopgirl in the film It that brought her global fame and the nickname “The It Girl”. Bow came to personify the roaring twenties and is described as its leading sex symbol.
