Another excellent documentary from Turner Classic Movies. Outside seeing It, I'm really not too familiar with Bow. I was disappointed in that film but I could certainly see why Bow was the first sex symbol in the business. This documentary was a great step in learning more about her career and her life, although it's pretty damn depressing. It was rather amazing hearing all the gossip column stories that brought her career to an end including one story that she took on the USC football team!!! I had known she had an affair with Gary Cooper, which is talked about here and I also knew about her fling with Bela Lugosi. The stuff with Lugosi is also mentioned here and the story told is actually one I hadn't heard before. In the end I'm really looking forward to seeing some more of her work.
