Dated Flapper Film, See It For Virginia
23 October 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Bare Knees is a flapper film that is hopelessly dated, but still fun to watch, just to see Virginia Lee Corbin all grown up, showcasing her independence and her pretty figure.

I'm not sure this film honestly represented the 1920's however; it was a much more complex era than Hollywood chose to present to the populace through its films. This film had to have been made before the Wall Street crash as well, since after that tragic event, which ushered in the Great Depression, flapper films quickly lost their popularity, to be replaced by breezy musicals or social dramas. After the crash a flapper film like Bare Knees, which showed women raising their skirts and smoking, was seen as rather shallow entertainment.
