Says Clara Bow to Clara Bow

Our busy camera catches the two separate and distinct Clara Bows that make the Brooklyn ball of fire such a complex and interesting gal. The Clara to the left is the carefree madcap of her frothier films – the Bow above is the somber, meditative girl who stops to wonder, now and then, whether the buggy ride called Life is worth all the wear and tear. Says the lower Bow to the upper Bow – “Wake up and live, kid! Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you’ll be fat, feeble and fifty!” Says the upper Bow – “Pipe down! Life isn’t so sweet and easy. You’ll have a headache in the morning!”
