Clara Bow In IT (1927) this morning!


Recommended Posts

This isn't really a favorite of mine, but well worth seeing because TCM rarely shows any Clara Bow films. They have aired the movie a few times in the past, and it has always been the Thames Silents version with a Carl Davis score that they have broadcast. So hopefully, that will be the case again tonight.


*IT* is not tied down in copyright to Paramount, and that is one reason that TCM can air this picture, where movies such as *MANTRAP, HULA, GET YOUR MAN* and *CHILDREN OF DIVORCE* are presently off limits.


While the film was a big hit in 1927, for me I can't stop thinking how much better this could have been with a younger and less prudish leading man than Antonio Moreno. I just don't see where He and Clara have much chemistry together, though that certainly isn't her fault. Interesting to note that in 1925 Elinor Glynn pronounced Norwegian blonde beauty *Greta Nissen* as being the personification of *IT* before she did Clara Bow.
