Here is a Clara Bow ghost story as reported by Alice L. Tildesley in 1929.
These are Tildesley’s words, not mine:
A year of so ago Clara spent several weeks on a yacht which she had rented from a steamship company. One night when Clara and her secretary-companion [Note: Probably Daisy DeVoe] were drifting off to sleep, the star was roused by the report of a revolver.
“What’s that?” she cried, tumbling out of her berth.
“‘Smatter?” burbled the secretary rolling out of hers.
Together they went on deck, but none of the crew had heard a sound.
“We dreamed it,” they decided.
But the next night the affair repeated, and again a week later the two girls were startled from a few hours’ sleep with the eerie report.
When they landed Clara mentioned the experience to one of the steamship officials.
“It seems that two years before I took the yacht, a well-known man was shot by some one in the very cabin we used,” confided the red-haired Clara. “The murderer escaped, nobody knows how. Perhaps he drowned and the shots we heard were fired by his ghost, still shooting at the ghost of the murdered man!”
