Comedian Danny Dechi joins host Mike Spiegelman for a movie surprising free of scary clowns.

The 89-year-old silent movie It was inspired by, but not based on, Elinor Glyn's novel, It. Characters from It (the movie) quote It (the novel) as a guide to find romance. Sort of like Steve Harvey's Think Like A Man (2012). Glyn herself appears in the movie, but the movie belongs to Clara Bow. She has "it." She hops on desks (see screen grab above), and, while overboard, cold-cocks her lover's girlfriend right in her face. That's It, indeed.
