Clara Bow: Becoming 'It'


Before Jennifer Lawrence. Before Elizabeth Taylor. Before, Marilyn Monroe there was Clara Bow. The original “It Girl”.

Journey with Clara, from the slums of Brooklyn, NY, to the golden age of Hollywood’s silent screen era, as she competes in The Motion Picture Magazine’s Fame and Fortune contest. Experience the highs and lows of stardom as Clara’s star rises to the top.  Meet her lovers. Tackle her scandals. Confront her loneliness. All in the effort to answer the question… is fame and fortune worth it?
