Clara Bow, the "It" girl of the silent screen, goes through the motions of the Cinderella yarn Love Among the Millionaires. A humble (but dazzlingly beautiful) waitress, Pepper Green (Bow) wins the heart of Jerry (Stanley Smith), the son of a wealthy railroad magnate Hamilton (Claude King). The father, evidently well-versed in Camille, begs Pepper to give up Jerry, suggesting that she behave in a "tartish" manner so as to disillusion the boy. Reluctantly, she does so, but be assured that True Love will out by the end. It isn't that Clara Bow was an inept talkie actress: it's simply that her flapper "type" was woefully out of date in the Depression era.
