Clara Bow In Movie Magazines

From a Nevada ranch, Clara Bow with husband Rex Bell, comes back to Hollywood to hang her restaurant shingle among Vine Street bright lights. There she mingles with those friends she used to know, meets as guests stars of new-found fame. – Photoplay, February 1938

From The Film Daily, February 1923, this is part of an eight page feature for Down to the Sea in Ships, Clara Bow’s second movie. Clara signed up to play a bit part. However, she was so impressive as Dot Morgan that the movie’s makers developed her role. The feature ran as a promotion for the movie’s March 4, 1923 general release.

This is a lovely piece about Clara Bow because it appears to have been written by Clara herself. She was promoting her ‘comeback’ movie, Call Her Savage. Although melodramatic in places, Call Her Savage is a decent film. Clara didn’t enjoy making talkies, but she had the natural talent to be a success in them.
