Additional Information

'It' (1927), directed by Clarence Badger. In her most famous role, Clara Bow stars as Betty Lou Spence, a feisty shopgirl with a certain irresistible sex appeal, who falls for her new boss, wealthy department store owner Cyrus Waltham. Intent on landing him as her husband, Betty turns on the charm—and the scheming—in this effervescent rags-to-riches romance that defined the flapper era.

Followed by 'Children of Divorce' (1927), directed by Frank Lloyd. In a rare dramatic star turn, Bow displays remarkable versatility as a spoiled socialite who schemes to ensnare her best friend’s suitor. Gary Cooper (a Bow beau at the time) makes his leading man debut and an uncredited Josef von Sternberg shot retake scenes.
