Movie Info

It was romance novelist Elinor Glyn who dubbed Clara Bow the "It" girl, so it was hardly a surprise when Bow starred in this adaptation of Mme. Glyn'sThe Vicissitudes of Evangeline. The star plays Bubbles McCoy, a crafty manicurist who hopes to land a wealthy husband. She sets her sights on handsome Robert Lennon (Lane Chandler) and also accepts expensive presents from Lennon's older male guardians. When they find out they're being played for suckers, Lennon and his cohorts give Bubbles the ozone at a fancy party. In a rage, she tears off her costly jewels and her fancy gown, jumps into a swimming pool, and, clad only in her skivvies, storms off the premises in high (and wet) dudgeon. Even so, a happy ending caps this typical Clara Bow vehicle, which also included a brief Technicolor sequence. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Red Hair

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

[Its] episodes [are] as likely as finding a sympathetic taxi-driver on a rainy night after the theatre. But its cheery nature makes it something far better than Mrs. Glyn has written for years [and is] the best picture in which Miss Bow has been featured.

A good picture. It is nothing extraordinary, but it is of the cheerful sort.

Clarence Badger, who directed the film, has managed to maintain a con-intent mild comedy gait which largely neutralizes the lack of an adequate story. Miss Bow makes the most of the central character by her usually spirited and charming performance.

It's jazzy -- dizzy -- sexy -- laughable.

[A] very amusing film.
