CLARA BOW Black and white photograph of the actress shown gazing towards the camera, wearing a fur shawl Inscribed Photograph Signed: "To Henry Nicka/Best Always/to you and yours/Sincerely/Clara Bow". B/w, 7½x9½. The daughter of a Coney Island waiter, Clara Bow (1905-1965) was turned into the symbol of the flapper age of the Roaring 20s by Paramount. During that era, Bow, with her cupid bow lips and sparkling eyes, was one of the first actresses to flaunt her freedom and sex appeal on screen. Among her big hits were Kiss Me Again (1925), Mantrap (1926) and It (1927), the latter resulting in her permanent nickname of the "It Girl". It is sometimes said that Bow's career was ruined by the advent of talking films, but she was the top-billed star in eleven of these, even singing capably in several. Sensational stories of her personal escapades, apparently exaggerated by the press, earned her a new nickname, however: "Crisis a Day Clara". Bow married B-movie cowboy star Rex Bell in 1931 and retired from filmmaking in 1933. Light corner creases. Minor surface scratches. One visible crease touches facial image. Faint pen impressions at lower left. Otherwise, fine condition.
