Storyline

Street people Armand and Marie are madly in love, and she persuades Armand and other gang members to rob the home of Pierre Marcel, a wealthy scientist. The police break up the robbery but Pierre hides Armand from them because he kept a gang member from stabbing him, but Armand is wounded in doing so. When Armand regains his health, Pierre takes him around town and introduces him to many women, and Armand has no objections. Marie - jealous of the women - swears revenge on Marcel. They meet and he falls in love with her, and they are married while Armand is away in London. On their wedding night, Marie tells Marcel she is an Apache and her revenge is complete, and she rushes into Armand's arms. But another Apache, in love with Marie, wounds her with a gun shot.

We'll Always Have Paris
4 July 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Thieving Parisian lovers Clara Bow (as Marie) and Donald Keith (as Armand) are separated when police interrupt their attempt to rob wealthy professor Lou Tellegen (as Pierre Marcel). Posing as a street doxie, Ms. Bow manages to escape, but Mr. Keith is wounded. Luckily for the handsome Keith, Mr. Tellegen turns out to have a yen for both men and women. Tellegen recognizes Keith as a former student, puts him to bed, and caresses him back to health.

Bow wants her boyfriend back; she suspects Tellegen has ensconced him on his estate, and manages to get her self a job there, as a temporary maid. Bow discovers Tellegen's plan to mate Keith with pretty Alyce Mills (as Jeanne), and jealously leaves. Keith tries to find Bow, but fails. After regrouping, Bow begins her final plan; to win the whispered-to-be "aloof from love" Tellegen's boy and money, she will pose as a convent girl and seduce him into marriage!

"Parisian Love" is a quite unlikely, but highly amusing comedy. Bow and Keith are a great match, with the former lively in a number of guises. Bow impresses as a commanding star comedienne. Fading idol Tellegen is a real surprise, plucking his gray hairs in a memorable scene, and mixing well with the young lovers. Also keep an eye on veteran hag Lillian Leighton; she is hilarious, hogging the liquor as Bow's "snuff-smelling, absinthe-gargling" companion.
