  1. Drew, I believe the original IT girl was Clara Bow.  In fact, coincidence, BBC-TV did a documentary on her last week.  You’ve only to see one of her silent films to understand why she became so popular. She was just a natural and the camera loved her. I think I did too.

  2. I think you’re right. But this one and that otter one also had their moment in the spotlight. And Betty B was the first film actress to get nekkid ... mostly nekkid ... in front of the camera. Off screen, she was married to the same guy for her whole life, very much unlike the Hollywood of today.

  3. I must say, that is quite a lovely lady. The return to prudery was a shame.
