I'm going to have to disagree with the person who said you should watch it without the sound. You can tell its a early talkie and that all of the actresses are trying very hard to make the transition. Clara Bow was a sensational actress but she had a very hard time with sound. Its a cute film if you don't over analyze it too much. And its fun to hear what Clara sounded like. You can kind of hear her Brooklyn accent if you listen really hard. It is cheesy but its 1929! You weren't allowed to do anything in 1929! Clara is great and its unfortunate that she retired by the time she was 27. The Wild Party is about girls who don't take college seriously until Clara, who's kinda like the queen bee, meets Frederic March, who is her professor. Its fun to see what life may have been like in the early years of sound. Clara was so talented and beautiful.
