The Sexiest Girl of the Roaring 1920's

In July of 1905 there was a heat wave in Brooklyn, and the small apartment above a store-front that served as a Baptist church was especially hot. Twenty-five-year-old Sara Francis Gordon-Bow was very pregnant. She had already given birth to two girls who died shortly after birth, and she was cautioned by her doctor that she should never try to have another child because she would never survive the attempt. Now, here she was, on one of the hottest days of the year, in one of the hottest apartments in Brooklyn, about to have another baby.

Screen star Clara Bow later said, “I don’t suppose two people ever looked death in the face more clearly than my mother and I the morning I was born.”

When Clara Bow was sixteen years old she entered an acting contest sponsored by a famous magazine, and she won second place, receiving an evening gown and a silver trophy. After pestering the contest promoters for months, she finally got a small part in a 1922 silent drama. Six years later, when fully half of all Americans went to the movies every week, she was the largest box office draw in the world and the highest paid actor. In 1929, when this movie was released, she was still the largest box office star in the world, and her popularity remained for most of the ‘Roaring Twenties’. Her outgoing sexuality was obvious on screen and she was the girl that every female in the audience wanted to be, and every male in the audience wanted to meet.

In this Clara Bow adventure there are two future movie stars that were just beginning their journey to fame. Clara Bow is Mayme, who lives with her sister Janie, played by Jean Arthur, with her distinctive voice. The two sisters are store clerks, and there are two more female store clerks that they work with, one a blonde, and the other a brunette. We will not see a good close-up of either, but the store clerk called Hazel, is Jean Harlow, who will soon become a platinum blonde motion picture sex-kitten.

In 1931, two years after making this movie, Clara Bow married cowboy movie star Rex Bell, and soon retired from motion pictures. The sex-kitten of the 1920's would relinquish her title to Jean Harlow, and others that would follow in her footsteps. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
