Survival of the Flirtiest
23 July 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

New York divorce lawyer Percy Marmont (as Ralph Prescott) is tired of leggy blondes flashing their wares through his office; he wants to get away from women. Meanwhile, in the small village of "Mantrap", woodsman Ernest Torrence (as Joe Easter) frets about the lack of female flesh in the Canadian mountains; he hardly ever gets to see a woman's ankle. Told he can see more leg in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Mr. Torrence visits the city. In a barber shop, he meets flirty manicurist Clara Bow (as Alverna). Ms. Bow is turned on by the older man's backwoods nature, and Torrence is turned on by Bow.

Bow and Torrence marry, and settle in isolated "Mantrap". This is also where Mr. Marmont goes, to get away from fast city women. During his vacation, Marmont becomes Torrence's hunting and fishing buddy. By now, Bow has become bored with Torrence and his country ways. Bow sees Marmont as her ticket back to Minneapolis, and decides to seduce him. Considering his friendship with Torrence, Marmont tries to resist, but finds himself falling in love… The story ends with the running time. Bow is non-stop flirtatious for lover director Victor Fleming and location cameraman James Howe.
