Clara Bow, star of numerous silent films and early talkies, personified sex as fun, earning the sobriquet "The It Girl." Notoriety ended her career before she was 30. "In this sensitive biography, readers will find a vibrant woman to empathize with, as well as an engrossing history of early picture-making," praised PW.
