Movie Info

In her pre-Paramount days, Clara Bow was shoved into some pretty dismal pictures. This aimless drama was one of the worst. Marie (Bow) and Armand (Donald Keith) are two lovers who belong to a band of Apaches (members of the Parisian underworld, not the Native Americans). When they believe that wealthy scientist Pierre Marcel (Lou Tellegen) is away from his home, they go with another associate, Knifer (Jean deBriac), to burglarize it. But Marcel is home, and Armand stops Knifer from killing him. The grateful man protects Armand when the police show up. Knifer is killed and Marie escapes. Armand, who has been wounded, is nursed back to health by Marcel, and he goes on to lead an honest life. Marie sees Armand kissing another girl and she becomes bent on revenge. Armand goes away on business, and with the financial aid of the Apache leader (Otto Marieson), Marie poses as a convent-bred girl. She wins Marcel's love and marries him, only telling him of her plot after the ceremony is completed. Armand returns from London and she rushes to him. The Apaches, believing that they are being double-crossed, take a shot at her. Although she is wounded, she recovers. Marcel goes to America and arranges a divorce so that the two lovers can be together. Luckily for Bow, The Plastic Age would be released just a few months later, effectively erasing the memory of poor films like this one.

Audience Reviews for Parisian Love


A cute romantic comedy/drama with the cute Clara Bow. It's entertaining, and the story is pretty good. If it were funnier, I think it would have been much better, but still it's pretty good.

[center][img][/img][/center] They simply don't make films like this anymore. Clara Bow is simply...perfect isn't even the word! If you enjoy the silent era, give this film a chance! [b]NOTES[/b] editing not perfect tint works good to reflect the lighting. robbery sequence, great stunt plot develops at a tight nit pace Clara Bow gives a performance unlike any other actress of today, or ever before. She's simply stunning without any dialogue, her expressions say it all. She;s adorable. hard to believe it's the same guy who directed Reefer Madness. This is byfar a great film, directed with great compassion for the performers and the story. music is beautiful art direction is very nice, along with costume design, nothing special, but has a powerful effect cinematography is very effective, demonstrates the power of silence as long as the images are inept
