A Tragic Loss For Silent Cinema
2 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Yvonne ( Clara Bow ), a girl whose father was electrocuted when she was a child, is brought up by her mother to be a crook and to avenge her father's death by living outside the law. She falls in love with "Red," ( Richard Arlen ) her partner in crime. Fearing that the electric chair will separate them, she tries to make him reform. Failing this, she shoots him in the shoulder when he tries to be included in a bank robbery. They give themselves up to pay the penalty and to start life anew without the constant fear of apprehension by the law.

This 1928 crime/drama was directed by William Wellman and produced by Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation, starring popular silent screen stars Clara Bow and Richard Arlen. Tragically now a lost film, Clara Bow looks absolutely beautiful in surviving film stills.
