Another French attempt to out-Hollywood Hollywood, 12 July 2000
Author: psteier from New York

Originally shot as a silent but a dubbed version was also released (I saw the dubbed version). It was clearly a big budget picture, which mainly shows in the shots of the beauty pageant and some of the female costumes.

Louise Brooks' performance is the main reason to see the film. Also interesting for views of the time, for example, seeing a Linotype machine in action.
