This has been labeled as Clara throughout the interwebs (Dr. Macro's has had this labeled as Clara, but the photo is no longer there http://doctormacro.com/Movie%20Star%20Pages/Bow,%20Clara.htm)
I highly doubt that this is Clara, it just doesn't look anything like her at all. So if it's not Clara, do we have any idea who it is?

On first impression, it sort of looks like Sue Carol to me, but I'm not saying that with any certainty.

As soon as I saw it, I thought it to be Sue Carol.

Just corroborating.

Thanks, Sue Carol it is.

Also, Dr. Macro moved the pic to the right place...

Now for photo #2...

Okay, is this Sue once again? If not, I think it's Loretta Young.

I'm inclined to think it's Sue again. The photo also doesn't look like Loretta Young at all to me.

I like how the Film Fun covers never quite look like the women they're supposed to be modeled on.

The eyebrows on photo #2 led me to think that it could be Loretta Young, but her (Loretta's) are pointed more up. It's Sue making a reappearance after all, methinks.

Could be Sue, also thinking Madge Bellamy, but her eyes don't look big enough.

Photo # 2 might be Sue Carol, but she looks a lot less wholesome and more made-up than the image Sue usually projected. It is, however, likely a Fox personality as Max Munn Autrey did art stills primarily for Fox in the late 1920s. Might be Mary Astor.

It's Sue Carol. No doubt.
