Hi people I'm new here. I love collecting Clara stuff. I have two copies of her bio Runnin' Wild and I am wondering if anyone wants to buy it off me. It's paperback and in great condition. I'm selling it for $10.00.

I accept paypal by anyone wishing to buy this who lives outside the UK.

This is the best site about Mabel Normand that I've ever found: http://www.freewebs.com/looking-for-mabel/index.htm  Lots to see and learn there!

And, if you live near Los Angeles, the 13th Festval of Preservation is coming up.  There are two early Clara Bow films (among many other wonderful things!) recently discovered and restored that are part of the schedule (schedule: http://www.cinema.ucla.edu/calendar/calendardetails.aspx?details_type=2&id=218), the first of which will play this Saturday night:

(1925) Directed by Roy William Neill

Perhaps best known as the dapper, urbane, martini-swilling leading man of the 1930s THIN MAN films, William Powell's first film role in Hollywood came by way of this fast-paced crime drama produced by B.P. Schulberg for his own independent production company. Powell, who welcomed the chance to play a sympathetic character after being typecast in villainous roles, plays star newspaper reporter Scott Seddon. Seddon is hired by the paper's editor to infiltrate a gambling ring that is trying to blackmail his daughter, Lola (Clara Bow). While Lola falls for Seddon, he in turn falls for Rita (Alyce Mills), a gang member toughened by the hard knocks of her early childhood.

Universal. Producer: B.P. Schulberg. Scenario: John Goodrich. Cinematographer: Allen Siegler. Cast: Alyce Mills, William Powell, Clara Bow, Frank Keenan. 35mm, silent, 68 min.

And then this one:

(1924) Directed by Louis Gasnier

Of the handful of Clara Bow's earliest films that still exist, POISONED PARADISE deserves attention for featuring one of her first leading roles. Here the future "It" girl blossoms under the direction of Louis J. Gasnier in the second of three pictures they made together in 1923 and 1924. POISONED PARADISE is simple melodramatic fare adapted from Robert W. Service's novel of the same name. While the plot contains elements of intrigue, it is essentially a story of romance between a boy and a girl after their chance meeting in Monte Carlo. Bow delivers a performance filled with emotion, giving her character depth and complexity enhanced by the cinematography of Karl Struss, who would go on to shoot SUNRISE and the silent BEN HUR (1925).

Based on the novel by Robert William Service. Producer: B.P. Schulberg. Scenario: Waldemar Young. Cinematographer: Karl Struss. Cast: Kenneth Harlan, Clara Bow, Barbara Tennant, Raymond Griffith. 35mm, silent, 75 min.

She's one hundred years old today. This calls for a Clara Movie Marathon!

Today on BBC Radio 4:

The Archive Hour
The Parade's Gone By

To produce his landmark book on the art of the silent movie, The Parade's Gone By, Kevin Brownlow interviewed many of the leading figures including directors Henry King, Alfred Hitchcock, Lewis Milestone and Garbo's favourite Clarence Brown, as well as stars such as Mary Pickford, Louise Brooks, Gloria Swanson, Buster Keaton and Boris Karloff.

In conversation with Kevin Brownlow, Michael Pointon explores a fascinating archive, voices from a now almost forgotten era. The programme also includes contributions from Sir Jeremy Isaacs, who helped to promote the silent film during his tenures at Thames TV and Channel 4, and film music composer, Carl Davis.

This program airs at 8 p.m. in the U.K. ... for listeners in the states, those times would be as follows: 3 p.m. Eastern, 2 p.m. Central, 1 p.m. Mountain, and 12 noon Pacific. Just go to the Radio 4 Web site and click the "Listen Live" link on the right side of the page.

If you are unable to listen to the program live, you can always listen later, by going to The Archive Hour Page on the Radio 4 Web site and clicking "Listen to the most recent Archive Hour."

Yeaaah, I know you're all probably sick of hearing me every week on this, but I keep finding new things that could be on interest.


That's a link to an interview held with the Author of Clara's Biography ("Clara Bow: Runnin' Wild") David Stenn. It's VERY interesting, and I would recommend it if you've never heard it before. He's got some interesting comments mostly about the preservation of Clara Bow films, and some other stuff.

Anyways... Yeah, that's about it.

Hello Guys, and Ladies!

I found something VERY interesting the other day and thought I should share it. I was shopping at Walmart when I came across the "scrapbooking" section, and there were little clippings. Well, liking the whole 20's era and flapper look I looked for any vintage look alike clippings. I glanced and saw this one package contain two Clara Bow mini photos. I believe the are originaly suppose to be used in either scrapbooking, or else sticker making. They look almost like a transparency when you take them out, so their not just plain black and white. They're not very big, and I've seen the photos before, but that really tickled me when I saw that Walmart carried such a thing.

Here's a link to a scan I did of the two. The image is kind of big, because I was lazy and forgot to reduce the size.


ENJOY! ^_^

Clara on TV:

Call Her Savage

A hot-headed woman leaves her alcoholic husband behind when she heads for the big city with a fortune she inherited. 90 minutes- 1932, BW

Amazon.com has lots and lots of Clara. Here are some of my favorites:
Hollywood Glamor Portraits: 145 Photos of Stars, 1926-1949 - by John Kobal. This has a few good photos of Clara, and also features Louise Brooks, Carole Lombard, Jean Harlow and lots of others.

Clara Bow: Runnin' Wild by David Stenn. A warmly written, detailed biography of Miss Bow by an obvious fan. Tons of great photos.

Complicated Women: Sex and Power in Pre-Code Hollywood by Mick LaSalle. This book is mostly about Norma Shearer, but briefly mentions Clara, and has a few photos of her.

Hope you enjoy!

Hi! I just joined to community a while back and thought it would be polite to post and introduce myself.

I got into Clara Bow about a year or so ago after doing an image search on google for "Joan Crawford" I came across a picture of Joan dressed like a flapper, and I clicked the link to the site where I came across some information about female actresses which had played flapper roles in the silents. Anyways, I came across some names and I then put "Clara Bow" into a google image search and when I saw the pictures of her... I thought she was the cutest thing I had ever laid eyes on from that time period.

And... I've been a fan ever since. ^_^

I've seen most of her movies released out to public on VHS, and I've watched, and read most books on Clara, or about her in the 20's era.

Well, I guess that's pretty much it! I hope to meet some new friends!!!
