About the film: Protected content

Clara Bow stars in an all too rare dramatic role as a tragic jazz age flapper with her real life lover Gary Cooper in his first leading man role

“Kitty (Clara Bow) wrestles with a legacy of neglect. She tries to beat society at its own arbitrary game, to grasp happiness by deceit. She loses. Wounded by a lonely childhood and misguided by her mother Kitty comes to recognize her youthful freedom for what it was - a chimera. Just as the collective trauma of WWI gave rise to the anything-goes culture of the Protected content , Kitty’s traumatic childhood has cultivated her fatal combination of wildness, cynicism, and naïveté. Bow proved herself a great dramatic actress as the haunted flapper. Through her character’s downward spiral, Bow captured the Jazz Age tragedy so beautifully articulated by an admirer of hers, F. Scott Fitzgerald.
