Silent superstar Clara Bow stars in Paramount and Dorothy Arzner’s first talkie as the most popular party girl in a women’s college dorm full of high-spirited flapper co-eds. The film’s critical and box-office success confirmed Arzner’s career as a director of A-list contemporary melodramas and breezy social comedies as well as a specialist in star-making vehicles for up-and-coming actresses.

Screening to be introduced by Dr Eloise Ross (President and co-curator of the Melbourne Cinémathèque).
