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.
