L.A. bows to ‘Clara’

Nobody has what Clara had, Hefner sez

The 1920s came roaring back Thursday night as Turner Classic Movies preemed “Clara Bow: Discovering the ‘It’ Girl” at Chasen’s in West Hollywood.

Exec producer Hugh Hefner was asked to single out someone who has “It” today, but declined to do so. “I won’t go near that,” he said. “Nobody has what Clara had. She defined an era and made her mark on the nation.”

Also there to remember one of Hollywood’s first sex symbols were birthday boy Tony Curtis, Robert Culp, Esther Williams, Leonard Maltin and Robert Stack; the docu’s director, Hugh Neely; TCM’s Tom Karsch and Jim Weiss; and Bow’s son, Rex Bell Jr.
