The silent romantic comedy that catapulted star Clara Bow into fame and gave us the term “The It Girl.” Featuring live accompaniment on the mighty Wurlitzer organ!
At Waltham’s department store, lowly salesgirl Betty Lou swoons over Cyrus Waltham Jr., the handsome playboy son of the owner. To her disappointment, Waltham doesn’t even know Betty Lou is alive. Luckily, Betty’s got plenty of “it” — sex appeal. All she needs to do is attract his attention. She accepts a date with Waltham’s best friend Monty with the condition that they must go to the Ritz, where Waltham also has a date. Her plan works and in no time, she and Waltham are contemplating marriage. Their romance cools when a newspaper reporter mistakenly writes a story that casts Betty Lou in an undesirable light.
