Good documentary, but read David Stenn's book
27 May 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is a good look at Clara. It is a very brief overview of her life, particularly her private life. Too bad there are very few people left who knew her, the interviews are sparse and not totally satisfying. I would have liked to hear more from her son (and wonder why her other son wasn't interviewed).

David Stenn's book covers her life in much more detail. I appreciate the opportunity to see rare footage and clips from unavailable films, but to understand the story of her life, read the book.

There are many tragic lives and many sad stories in Hollywood. Clara Bow, in my estimation, is one of the saddest stories in Hollywood, a truly tragic life. We can be grateful that she was able to give us a few years of marvelous films.
