Another slice of perfection from the divine Miss Bow!
10 July 2001 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Can Clara Bow do anything wrong? This perfect French farce, beautifully directed by Dorothy Arzner, sees Clara as an American in Paris. She falls madly in love with the utterly gorgeous Charles 'Buddy' Rogers (and who wouldn't?). Trouble is he's a nobleman betrothed since childhood to another woman. So Clara devises an elaborate plan to "get her man". Clara is just delicious, playing with comic perfection, and very sexy to boot. The scenes when she seduces the old Marquise, played brilliantly by Harvey Clark, are hilarious, and the final stage of her plan is so outrageous you'll hardly believe the film-makers got away with it. How sad that there is some bad nitrate decomposition and some missing footage on the one surviving print. But even this can't stop that Bow glow! 10 out of 10!
