Clara Bow

Named for the famous "IT" girl, the Bow room shows the femininity of ruffled pillows and curtains, while acknowledging the masculinity of strong accent colors on the walls and bedspread, it is favored by those who like the "Old Fashioned Look" of the decor used by many of our ancestors. Early American antiques and a fresh flowers are features of the room. The colors are antique rose, soft mauve and deep wines and greens. Slip into the cozy bathrobes provided in the armoire and sip your wine while watching TV or reading.

Short Bio

The "jazz baby" personified,
Clara Bow (1906-1965) became one of Hollywood's brightest lights of the '20s. Saucy and pert, Clara was dubbed 'The "It" Girl' by Elinor Glyn and chosen to star in the film version of Ms. Glyn's famous novel. While nothing more than good old sex appeal, "It" symbolized the tremendous progress women were making in society, and leading the way was Clara Bow.

Success followed success, with Clara's popularity growing from such films as
Mantrap, Kid Boots, Dancing Mothers, and Wings. But it was 1927's grand-slam smash It which made Clara Bow Paramount's number 1 star, and the most famous name in Hollywood.

Contrary to popular belief,
 Clara Bow successfully made  
  the transition to talkies with such roles as
Call Her Savage and Hoopla.
  She retired from films in 1933 to become a full-time wife and later, full-time
  mother to two sons, Tony and George.

But at my back I always hear Time's winged chariot hurrying near.
- Andrew Marvell (1621-1678)
