Don't expect "The 'It' Girl" in Clara Bow's Free to Love
22 June 2008 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Having just watched "The Vamp" Theda Bara in A Fool There Was on YouTube, I thought I'd go to another sex symbol of the silent era on the same site and seek out a film starring "The 'It' Girl", Clara Bow. Unfortunately, the one I watched, Free to Love, was a melodrama about a girl wrongly sent to an institution a couple of years ago who goes to her accuser and confronts him with a gun. That accuser now knows her innocence and asks for her forgiveness, which she does. Then there's some various twists that sort of made my head hurt and there's this twitchy guy named Tony and...Like I said, this was a melodrama that provided Ms. Bow and others to overact like you see in many silent pictures. I watched wanting to care about the characters but I just wanted the whole thing to be over. And on top of that, the print itself was just so blurry and the music picked to score the film was so overwhelming, it was just overkill for me. I also could've sworn some scenes were edited. So on that note, unless you're a silent movie buff with lots of curiosity, I wouldn't recommend Free to Love.
