Clara Gordon Bow (1905-1965) was born to a life of poverty in Brooklyn, New York. An avid moviegoer in her teens, she entered a movie magazine's "Fame and Fortune" contest in hopes of escaping her dreary upbringing. Winning through sheer determination, she was soon cast in her first hit, Down to the Sea in Ships (1922). Several more successes followed, before Bow starred in It (1927), in which she played a shop girl turned flapper. Afterwards, she would be forever known as "The It Girl".

Down to the Sea in Ships was praised for its documentary-style whaling sequences, which have been compared to Nanook of the North (1922). It was remade in 1949 with Richard Widmark and Lionel Barrymore.The Primrose Path (1925): Wealthy playboy Bruce Armstrong has a bright future ahead of him with gorgeous showgirl Marilyn Merrill.
