Silent & Classic movies @ Heritage Square: sex and suffragism

If you’d rather lounge than sit at the movies, if cocktails, not Coke, are your preferred cinematic sip,  or you want to know what the “It’ in “It Girl” really means (Hint: it starts with “s” and ends with “x”), then mark your date book in red for an evening with Clara Bow,  “the girl of the year…someone to stir every pulse in the nation,” according to  F. Scott Fitzgerald who knew a thing or two about flappers, the Twenties, and champagne cocktails.

For the last night of the summer outdoor film series “Silent and Classic Movies”, living history museum Heritage Square and series sponsor Videotheque will present Bow’s iconic film It as well as Parisian Love.   The vivacious, sexy, and charismatic actress became the symbol of the independent young woman of the Jazz Age, so is the perfect femme for the finale of this year’s series, which honors Golden Era screen queens to commemorate the 90th anniversary of women getting the vote.

Not that you’ll be thinking voting booths while the It Girl is on screen….
