An American in Paris
23 July 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

As a boy, handsome Charles "Buddy" Rogers (as Robert Albin) was betrothed to fetching young Josephine Dunn (as Simone de Valens), by respective fathers Josef Swickard (as the Duke of Albin) and Harvey Clark (as the Marquis de Valens). Seventeen years later, the French noble class prepare for Mr. Rogers' pre-arranged wedding. Rogers is sent to the city (Paris) to pick up a string of pearls for the bride, and meets sexy Clara Bow (as Nancy Worthington). Rogers continually runs into Ms. Bow, a New Yorker spending her first unchaperoned day in the romantic city.

By their third meeting, Rogers and Bow are clearly becoming attracted to each other. They fall in love in a wax museum. Bow thinks, "It must be fate." Rogers is stricken with Bow, but feels honor-bound to go through with his Saturday wedding to Ms. Dunn. Sadly, Rogers and Bow part. But, Bow has a plan to "Get Your Man". She stages an automobile accident at Rogers' château, and ingratiates herself into the family. After learning that Rogers' intended wife has a lover, Bow is more determined than ever to break up the unhappy couple.

Reels #2 and #3 of this slightly damaged, six reel feature are lost, but it's still a cohesive, enjoyable film.

The missing footage contains more of Bow and Rogers romancing in Paris, then Bow's staged accident at his château. The accident and aftermath are certainly missed, but it isn't too difficult to comprehend what's happened. Director Dorothy Arzner and photographer Alfred Gilks capture their stars beautifully. That Rogers catches his sleeve on a suitcase while packing, and has to kick a fallen pillow out of the way gives his performance a natural spontaneity. Bow is fresh and playful. The supporting cast is a treasure chest. Hopefully, this film has been saved from any further deterioration.
