Bow, Clara 1905-65 US film actress

Winning a fan-magazine beauty contest took her to Hollywood, but her break came in 1925 when the producer she was under contract to joined Paramount. Molded by the studio publicity machine with her swinging bob and cupidbow lips, she became the ultimate flapper: vibrant, liberated. It (1927) confirmed her status, but scandal, a shift in taste, mental instability and the coming of sound quickly put an end to her career.
