Rated NR · 72 minutes · 1927

Drama, Silent
A department store clerk (Clara Bow) tries to live according to the tenets of Elinor Glyn's book about sex appeal (also titled It) and winds up marrying her boss. This fast and funny silent comedy of 1927 has one of the great lines of the period—"Hot socks! Here comes the boss!"—and as Dave Kehr has pointed out, it "launched Clara Bow as a star of extraordinary dimensions (most of them around the hips)." Directed by Clarence Badger, with Antonio Moreno, William Austin, Jacqueline Gadsdon, a young Gary Cooper, and Glyn herself, who worked on the script with Hope Loring and Louis D. Lighton. A real treat.
