You couldn't go wrong with the "tired businessmen" in a 1928 movie audience with a title like Bare Knees. Virginia Lee Corbin plays a jazz baby who throws her sister's wedding into turmoil. Not only does she show up in a short flapper dress, but she also-gasp!--smokes and swigs bootleg hootch. Actually, she's got a lot more integrity than some of her sister's phony society friends, as handsome leading man Donald Keith soon finds out. While Virginia Lee Corbin is no Clara Bow, Bare Knees survives as one of the definitive flapper flicks of the twenties.
