Brooklyn, New York, and was raised in poverty and violence. Her often absentee
and brutish father could not or did not provide and her schizophrenic mother
tried to slit Clara's throat when the girl spoke of becoming an actress. Her
appearance as a plucky shopgirl in the film It brought her global fame and the
nickname "The It Girl". In the film she slaps her boss for asking for a kiss
after a night out. Bow came to personify the Roaring Twenties and is described
as its leading sex symbol. ✨ Clara Bow Trivia: ★ Before she was known as "The

✨ Clara Bow Quotes: "The more I see of men, the more I like dogs." "People used
to say that I had a feeling of closeness, a great warmth of loving everybody,
that they could tell me their troubles." "Wally Reid was my first sweetheart,
though I never saw him except on the screen. He was Sir Galahad in all his
glory. I worshiped Mary Pickford. How kind and gentle and loving she was. Maybe
there were people like that in the world."
