Love to narrate Bow doc

Singer/actress finds kindred spirit in '20's icon

Turner Classic Movies announced that actress/musician Courtney Love will narrate its upcoming original documentary “Clara Bow: Discovering The It Girl,” an hour-long retrospective on one of the biggest sex symbols during the Roaring ’20s.

TCM will premiere the Timeline Films production on Tuesday, June 25, at 8 p.m. The documentary celebrates the legend, the scandals and the acting brilliance that made Bow the top female star of the Jazz Age.

“Courtney’s passion for the subject matter and personal identification with Clara Bow will add richness and timeliness to this project,” said Tom Karsch, senior VP and general manager, TCM.

Bow was condemned publicly for alleged immoral offscreen behavior. Because of a nervous condition, Bow’s career ended by the time she was 26. She lived largely in seclusion until her death in 1965.

Love, the singer and guitarist for the alternative band Hole, has acted in films such as “The People vs. Larry Flynt” and “200 Cigarettes.”
