The Wild Party
In this film, the irresponsible Stella Ames (Clara Bow) spends her college career attending parties rather than studying. However, when she ends up in the difficult class of the handsome, but stern, Professor Gil Gilmore (Fredrick March), she develops a crush on him which creates a series of dilemmas for both of them. The Wild Party, directed by one of the first female directors, Dorothy Arzner was Clara Bow's first talkie film, and -- while dated -- is still good, trashy fun to watch. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's historical merits are greater than its artistic ones: It's Paramount first sound film, directed by Dorothy Arzner (the only women to have a sustained directing career at the time), and the star is "It" Girl, Clara Bow."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"It was a frivolous vehicle for the very appealing 'good time girl' Clara."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
