Clara Bow: Runnin' Wildby David Stenn
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Hollywood's first sex symbol, the ' It ' girl, Clara Bow was born in the slums of Brooklyn in a family plagued with alcoholism and insanity. She catapulted to fame after winning Motion Picture magazine's 1921 " Fame and Fortune" contest. The greatest box-office draw of her day—she once received 45,000 fan letters in a single month, Clara Bow's on screen vitality and allure that beguiled thousands, however, would be her undoing off-camera. David Stenn captures her legendary rise to stardom and fall from grace, her success marred by studio exploitation and sexual scandals.

Engrossing, enchanting, heart breaking and enlightening. A truly remarkable bio.
So glad I ordered and read the Clara Bow biography. The book was well-written and made you feel like you knew Clara personnally. I highly recommend it.
Very well written.
David Stenn's biography of Clara Bow is a masterpiece of sensitive writing. Bow's life has been shrouded in hearsay and lies, but Stenn manages to wade through the dredge to find the truth. Both his writing style and reseach are wonderful. Stenn's boi of Jean Harlow is also very impressive.
