Perfect....except for one thing.
19 August 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This is an engaging documentary of one of the most celebrated actresses on the history of the screen, Clara Bow. The snippets of movies not available to the viewing public is at once wonderful and sad, because unless we make a trip to MoMA, we won't be able to view most of these films. The only thing that makes this less than perfect is that Courtney Love is the narrator. She has an irritating voice, and sounds as if she's falling asleep during parts of the film. I'm sure that she was picked because she's considered an It girl of today, but why not get someone with real "oomph" and warmth to their voice, like Kate Hudson? Or someone with more voiceover experience, such as Glenn Close or Holly Hunter? Love's narration ruins an otherwise excellent documentary.
