Mmmm. Clara. My favourite silent screen crush, Louise Brooks (and Edna Purviance, and Mabel Normand) notwithstanding.

Nice to see someone else give it up for Edna. I think she was dreamy. Then again, I was watching Chaplin shorts on after school TV around the same time I discovered Emma Peel, so I blame the onrush of youthful hormones.

Not that there's anything wrong with Pamela Anderson or whoever the hot mindless cheescake is these days.

As much as I love Brooksie, Clara had a physicallity about her sex appeal that is unmatched. Even when she was hamming it up, it jumped right outta her skin at the tiniest movement. Amazing. Plastic Age contains one her best "looks" - her hair was perfect for her face in this one.
