Clara Bow : Runnin' Wild
By David Stenn
Hollywood's first sex symbol, the ' It ' girl, Clara Bow was born in the slums of Brooklyn in a family plagued with alcoholism and insanity. She catapulted to fame after winning Motion Picture magazine's 1921 " Fame and Fortune" contest. The greatest box-office draw of her day―she once received 45,000 fan letters in a single month, Clara Bow's on screen vitality and allure that beguiled thousands, however, would be her undoing off-camera. In Clara Bow: Runnin' Wild, David Stenn captures her legendary rise to stardom and fall from grace, her success marred by studio exploitation and sexual scandals.
