Never Forget Me

Clara Bow(1905-1965):Later to become the personification of the flaming Roaring Twenties,Clara Bow was born and brought up in near poverty in Brooklyn.She won a photo beauty contest which started a movie career of some 56 feature films.Best known as the uninhibited flapper,she reached the top as the "It Girl" in 1927.With the advent of sound and the Depression's disfavorable attitude towards Jazz-age extravagances,her popularity faded.Also,adding to her problems,were gambling debts,unpaid taxes and several sensational public court battles involving alienation of affections and embezzlement (by her secretary.)She then married cowboy star Rex Bell at age 26 and retired from the screen at age 28.Plagued by personal crises,a weight problem and mental instability (It was discovered that Clara was schizophrenic,like her mother),she never made another film.She moved to Nevada with Rex Bell. She raised two sons,all the while battling her mental illness, and died in obscurity in 1965.

She's beautiful and so is the page! Never saw that many silent films. And it's always something to find out how many stars had so many problems. Sad. She's beautiful.
