About the Event
IT was a hit with audiences all over the United States, breaking box office records. Critics praised the film, especially its star, as "a joy to behold". IT turned Clara Bow from an up-and-coming movie actress into the biggest movie star of the 1920s who in the process became a film legend as a result of "It". The term "The It girl" has since entered the cultural lexicon.
The film had its world premiere in Los Angeles on January 14, 1927, followed by a New York showing on February 5, 1927. It was released to the general public on February 19, 1927.
Plot: When she first sets eyes on her new boss, the wealthy Cyrus Waltham Jr. (Antonio Moreno), department store clerk Betty Lou Spence (Clara Bow) is convinced he's got "it," an indefinable quality that makes one irresistible to the opposite sex. Betty Lou charms her employer on a date, but Cyrus suddenly cools when he hears a false story that Betty Lou has mothered an illegitimate child. Crushed by Cyrus' assumption, the shopgirl ramps up the sex appeal to win her man back and teach him a lesson.
