    • Comedy

This week, Miriam covers the original Hollywood “It Girl,” actress Clara Bow; and Lavetta covers the inspiration for the character Mariko-sama from the hit show “Shogun,” Hosokawa Tama.
-----
In this episode, Miriam introduces silent film actress Clara Bow (American, 1905–1965). The hosts discuss Bow's difficult childhood, her entry into the film industry, and her rise to fame as the embodiment of the flapper. An iconic Hollywood actress known for her roles in silent films, Bow faced challenges in her personal life, including controlling producers and tabloid scandals, but she remained true to herself and was a trailblazer in portraying strong, independent women on screen. Next, Lavetta introduces legendary noblewoman Hosokawa Tama (Japanese, 1563–1600), also known as Hosokawa Gracia and Tomoko Gracia. Not much is known about her early life. She was the daughter of a powerful daimyo, raised in a castle, and married into the influential Hosokawa family. After her husband's death, she was caught in the power struggle between rival factions and was ordered to be taken hostage. However, to preserve her honor and the honor of her family, she chose to take her own life instead. Her story has been the inspiration for numerous works of Japanese historical fiction, including the novel Shogun.
