I recently watched "It," a silent film starring Clara Bow. This is the film that dubbed her "The 'It' Girl." It's a Cinderella-like story about a girl who's a clerk in a department store, who's attracted to her rich and handsome boss. And although the feeling's mutual, their relationship is not a smooth one. In it, Ms. Bow demonstrates what a versatile actress she was, and how she personified "It" . . . a combination of animal magnetism, irresistible attractiveness and humor. A totally enjoyable film . . . and unlike many silents, always kept my attention throughout.
