thanks a lot for the screencaps,dead dancefloor."it" is such an enchanting little film,and miss bow is simply adorable.she was the ultimate flapper,but also a lot more than that:she was a great actress.unfortunately she got typecasted by directors and seldomly got the chance to show her great talent (like in calll her savage).what a waste....

the pics i´m going to post are scans i made from a french movie magazine called "le film" from dec 1928.clara was on the cover and there´s also a long article about her inside and a lot of pics.

poor clara seems to get a bit neglected here.time to do something about it!
that´s clara on the cover of "novella" an italian magazine from march 1933.the caption under the pic says:"at hollywood the fascination for thin actresses has also decreased : perhaps that´s the secret behind clara bow´s new success."
the magazine is so huge that it didn´t wholly fit into my scanner .therefore i´ll post two versions....

while the novella-cover shows clara pretty much at the end of her film carreer,the third scan i´m posting is right from the beginning of her carreer not long after she had won the fame and fortune contest.its from motion pciture classic sept. 1922
