Oh wow - *great* post Lance. That revelation at the end was perfect - I literally said, "Oh!"

Great stuff. Really interesting about Clara Bow...one difference between Bow and Lohan, Lindsey can actually act...yeah she's made a lot of horrible movies but in the good and merely decent movies she's done (Parent Trap as a wee lass, Mean Girls, Georgia Rules, even the Freaky Friday remake--in which she was really the only saving grace) she's always the draw that carries the movies. Count me a fan who would love to see her get herself together an into some real meaty adult roles.

Budd Schulberg's book "moving pictures" is about making a star out of his father BP. On Clara's expense. Truth is that she was one of the most well equipped talents, ever sat foot in Hollywood. Young Budd fell in love with her, like everybody else, and paid the price. He says she was a "reckless" person. Sweet Lindsey is a nice actress, but far to venerable to work in the machine like Clara, who never, that is never, failed to report for work 7am. 1931 her secretary sold her out and she broke down. Anybody would. She returned and made "Call her savage" and "Hoopola" 1932 & 1933, retired, got pregnant 1934 and lived a normal family life until 1965. Rest is myths.
