Based on Sheila’s post about Clara Bow’s 1927 silent film, “It,” I went to Netflix to order… well, it.
Well, I kind of messed up the search and looked for “The It Girl.” Nope. So I thought, OK, I’m not remembering this correctly, look it up again on Sheila’s site. While I waited for the page to load, I re-searched, looking instead for Clara Bow. Heh.
This is what I got (below the fold):
It actually doesn’t sound terrible, though I doubt that she goes on the tilt-a-whirl or Social Mixer with some monster. That’s not the style in Japan. What is the style is the “Half-human, half-X protagonist who wages war on Full-X baddies to save humanity.” A complete listing would require its own branch of the Internet.
The good news is that Netflix will send us the Clara Bow movie as soon as we get through a couple other titles. By then I’m sure we’ll have a “It vs. It” crossover novel, a la “Pride Prejudice and Zombies” or “Android Karenina.”
