Sinopsis: The real-life story of a doomed woman whose eight-year reign as America's foremost screen actress and subsequent disintegration is at once harrowing and heroic. She was the legendary "It" Girl, the embodiment of the Roaring Twenties. She was the hottest box-office draw during Hollywood's Golden Silent Era. Gorgeous, sexy and wild, her numerous lovers (including Gary Cooper and Victor Fleming) shocked even the sexually promiscuous Hollywood movie colony. She was a talented actress who broke all the rules of Tinsel Town until she herself was finally broken at 25. At the peak of her career, Clara was the film industry's most overworked and underpaid superstar. Her fame didn't spare her years of reckless mismanagement and scandals involving gambling, sexual misconduct and embezzlement made headlines that were to devastate her. Verging on collapse Clara was devoured by the press, and spent the rest of her life in isolation and sickness.
Críticas: She was Marilym Monroe decades before Marilyn. How movingly David Stenn has written the story of this hilarious and heartbreaking star.--Dominick Dunne
