Clara Bow 1920s Film Star Inspiring Quote Postcard
"I'm a big freak because I'm myself" - inspiring quote by silent film star Clara Bow, shown here in a 1920s black and white publicity photo. Clara Bow (July 29, 1905 – September 27, 1965) rose to stardom in silent movies and later transitioned to early talkies. Born in Brooklyn, NY, Clara had a traumatic childhood of poverty, a mentally ill mother and alcoholic father. With her red hair, tomboyish nature and old clothes she was teased and didn't fit in with other girls her age. Her only close friend, a little boy, died in a fire. To Clara, movies were an escape. She would spend hours in front of the mirror practicing lines from movies, trying to improve on the actress's performance in gesture and expression (n.b. at the time movies were silent - spoken lines and captions appeared on screen between shots). Despite her father's alcoholism he loved her deeply and encouraged her to follow her dream, even though her mother disapproved. After some stops and starts Clara rose to fame in the silent move "It" (where "it" is the charismatic quality some people have in front of a camera); she became known as the "It" girl. As her career progressed she was often cast in offbeat or tomboyish roles, challenging the stereotypical traditional views of women. Clara had a warm personality and tried to make everyone happy, so everyone loved working with her. Unfortunately she could never fully resolve the emotional problems of her childhood. She retired from acting, took up ranching and in later years became reclusive. She died at age 60 of an undiagnosed heart condition, but she made a lasting impact, personifying the "flapper" of the 1920s, and as a top box office draw. She was an inspiration to those who knew her and a delight on the screen, and her legacy will live on for countless generations to come. This black and white device case is perfect for fans of old movies, film stars, Clara Bow and individuality!
