Few leading ladies appeared in as many films in 1926 as the vivacious Clara Bow. In My Lady's Lips, Bow plays the feisty daughter of newspaper magnate Frank Keenan. And that's about all she does, since the bulk of the film concerns the trials and tribulations of female crook Alyce Mills. For the sake of handsome young reporter William Powell, Mills double-crosses her underworld associates and risks being fitted for a cement kimono. Critics in 1926 complained about the casting of William Powell as the hero, suggesting that the actor would be wise to continue playing villains lest he lose his standing in Hollywood!
