Fantastic Documentary
1 December 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I just watched this last night, and I have to say that I was very impressed. I'm not going to go into a lengthy review here, but I'll just say that I previously did not know much about Clara Bow, but after watching this I am now fascinated. I also found Courtney Love to be an amazing narrator for the piece. Unlike some of the other comments here, I thought she really breathed life into the story of Ms Bow.

I would recommend this documentary to anyone who likes movies and is interested in learning of past stars.
