Making "It" in Hollywood: Clara Bow, Fandom, and Consumer Culture
Preview not available

Abstract

Fan magazines had a dramatic impact on actress Clara Bow's career and on female fandom more generally. This article examines Bow's 1927 star vehicle "It" as a parable for fan culture, particularly for the ways that fan magazines constructed their female readers and Hollywood films addressed their female spectators.
