Film Notes

Independent out of town exhibs testify that Clara Bow hops into their houses and is a high rated name draw despite the second run and 90 days later clauses. Red Hair isn’t going to change that status on this round-eyed personality girl. Bow plus Glyn equals underwear, and that goes in this release, and plenty. Flaps and the wide-panted males will like it because it won’t make them think and Miss Bow hasn’t looked as well in many a picture. A natural color start, featuring the star in a white bathing suit with her red hair against a blue sky, is symbolic of something or other – but what’s more important will probably make many a guy struggle to remember that the wife and kids come first. Story doesn’t mean a thing other that it makes Clara a gold digging manicurist who presumably reforms after an aquatic rescue by Lane Chandler.
