She popularized the concept of It. Although her works are relatively tame by modern standards, she had tremendous influence on early 20th century popular culture and perhaps on the careers of notable Hollywood stars such as Rudolph Valentino, Gloria Swanson and Clara Bow in particular.Glyn was the celebrated author of such early 20th century bestsellers as It, Three Weeks, Beyond the Rocks and other novels which were then considered quite racy. On the strength of the popularity and notoriety of her books, Glyn moved to Hollywood to work in the movie industry in 1920. She is credited with the re-styling of Gloria Swanson from giggly starlet to elegant star. Beyond the Rocks was made into a silent film that was released in 1922- the Sam Wood-directed film stars Gloria Swanson and Rudolph Valentino as a romantic pair. In 1927, Glyn helped to make a star of actress Clara Bow for whom she coined the sobriquet the It girl. In 1928, Bow also starred in Red Hair, which was based on Glyns 1905 novel.This Edition Contains 18 Works-● The Reflections of Ambrosine● The Visits of Elizabeth● The Damsel and the Sage● Red Hair● Beyond The Rocks● Three Weeks● One Day● Elizabeth Visits America● His Hour● High Noon● The Reason Why● Halcyone● The Point of View● The Man and the Moment● Three Things● The Price of Things● Man and Maid● The Career of Katherine BushThis Edition Features:● Biography of Elinor Glyn● Active Table of Contents● Well Kindle FormattingAnd if you enjoy this volume, dont forget to search your favorite ebook store for Jame-Books to see all the other entries in this great series, covering science fiction, fantasy, horror, mysteries, westerns, classics -- and much, much more!
