Cute Clara Bow sitting by the chimney on the snow-capped roof waiting for Santa Claus

Looks like Clara can hardly wait for Santa Claus to arrive with her Christmas presents!

It’s the night before Christmas — are you enjoying a hearty Christmas Eve dinner with your family and friends, or are you sitting by the fireplace waiting for Santa Claus to arrive? For silent film era actress Clara Bow in the photo above, it must have been the latter. However, it looks like she got tired of waiting indoors and decided to keep watch where she can easily see him coming — where else, but on the rooftop and next to the chimney! Poor Clara, we hope she doesn’t have to wait long for him out in the cold!

We hope you’ve already got your presents under the tree so you don’t have to perch on the roof and wait for Santa Claus up there as well!

Merry Christmas from all of us in the Lomography Magazine Team!

    Irony: Clara Bow was one of the very naughtiest girls of the 1920's, but, the story about her and the 1927 USC football team was a lie. Lots of affairs, but for USC and their opponents, it was parties with music, dancing, lots of food, but absolutely no sex and no alcohol. Almost all were under 21, and that was her bright line.

    @herbert-4 wow, I've read somewher about her being a "sex symbol" of her time (didn't quite get that, though), but didn't know she was that naughty! Maybe Santa put her on the "naughty" list, then? Haha. Merry Christmas, by the way! :)
