Directed by Clarence Badger | 1927

With Clara Bow, Antonio Moreno, William Austin

“Fast and funny... A real treat.”
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Bow stars in this film loosely based on a Cosmopolitan article by Elinor Glyn, who defined “it” as the charisma that “draws all others with its magnetic force.” Bow has “it” in spades as Betty Lou, a lowly shopgirl determined to marry her boss, the handsome heir to the world’s largest store. Her misadventures double as a manual for social-climbing, circa 1927: Dress well. Don’t put out. Introduce your lover to the simple pleasures of a day in Coney Island. And, when ordering at a fancy restaurant that prints its menu in French, just say, “I’ll have what he’s having.” Glyn has a brief on-screen cameo.
