Her Wedding Night

Smart showmanship. Combination of jaunty comedy of the spicy Avery Hopwood type, [based on his play, Little Miss Bluebeard] generous flavoring of spice in title and action, and a wealth of gay romance in hoke farcical setting.

Smart showmanship. Combination of jaunty comedy of the spicy Avery Hopwood type, [based on his play, Little Miss Bluebeard] generous flavoring of spice in title and action, and a wealth of gay romance in hoke farcical setting.

Whole production is deftly handled. Settings and atmosphere beautifully manage to set off the gay tone of the whole affair. And the cast surrounding the Paramount redhead has been fitted to tailor-made roles with nicety. Clara Bow plays the racy heroine with a vigor that compensates for some of her shortcomings of voice and diction.

Plot doesn’t matter except that Larry (Ralph Forbes), composer of sentimental songs, persuades his friend, Bob (Skeets Gallagher), to impersonate him to escape hero-worshipping flappers. Bob goes off on a romantic spree under his pal’s name, inadvertently marrying Norma (Bow) before a rural Italian magistrate.
