For those who have never heard of Clara Bow, Clara Bow was an actress who was famous during the ¨Roaring 20s¨ and acted in many silent films. She was more famous because she had the flapper look which made her the ¨It Girl¨ of her time. I´ll now be ranking 4 films she acted in, in what I feel was the best film she acted in and what was her worst.
Even though this is one of Clara Bow’s most famous films she acted in – and what shot her to fame–, I still feel it’s the best film she acted in and it is a personal favorite of mine. In the film, she plays as the main character, Betty Lou, who works in a new department store who lays eyes on her boss and is convinced that he’s got “it”, which throughout the film we discover what this “it” truly is. I really enjoy this film because I feel like it was really ahead of its time and it was enjoyable to watch and I feel that Clara Bow did a really good job acting in it.
The Wild Party (1929)
Though this film isn’t a silent film and was the beginning of “talkies”, I still am going to count this in the list because I really liked this movie and feel like Clara Bow was one of the trailblazers for romantic comedies we know now.
While this film doesn’t have Clara Bow acting in the majority of the film, I still really enjoyed it because it kinda brought a perspective of war and being in aviation. Besides that, I don’t have much to say as this is one of my least favorite films she acted in.
Black Oxen (1923)
This has to be one of Clara Bow’s worst films because I didn’t enjoy the plot of it, plus, I felt the movie was dragged out. Clara Bow did a good job acting in the movie, though. Of course, I just wish she got more screen time in it, as she looked very pretty in the film. I really loved her outfits in this film.
