A very likable film even though the humor is a bit broad.
5 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Norma Talmadge plays the title role. Kiki is a goofy young Parisian lady who wants to join the chorus. Using her wits and a bit of trickery, she is able to become a chorus girl. Unfortunately, she's also a ditsy nut and soon loses her job. The boss (Ronald Colman) feels sorry for her, however, and he takes her home. Kiki is in love with him but his thoughts are for the diva of his company--a sophisticated and very demanding lady. Can Kiki manage to steal away his heart or is nice-guy Colman going to throw his life away on the diva? Norma is pretty good in this film but sometimes her character is a bit too goofy--making the humor a bit too broad. This is not a major complaint but prevents the movie from rising to the level of the best female silent comedies (such as Marion Davies in "Show People"). Enjoyable but slight.

By the way, since this is a Pre-Code film, there is some sexual innuendo you just won't see in post-1934 films. The most funny and bawdy is the bed bouncing scene--which you'll just have to see for yourself.
