The irresistible Clara Bow was at the height of her popularity when she made this outstanding comedy with Hollywood’s leading female director, Dorothy Arzner. Set in Paris, Clara Bow plays Nancy Worthington, an American tourist, who meets the noble Robert de Bellecontre when they are accidentally locked in a museum overnight. And despite Robert’s arranged engagement to the aristocratic Simone de Villeneuve, they are in love by the next morning. When she learns of the engagement, she plots and schemes to get her man! Track #16 on Taylor Swift’s new album The Tortured Poets Department, is titled “Clara Bow” in honor of the legendary “it girl”. (USA, 1927, 63 mins, 35mm, Silent with English intertitles | Dir. Dorothy Arzner)
