Another film where the bachelor pad plays a leading role. Directed by the legendary Michael Curtiz of Casablanca fame and starring Vaudville and stage star Frank Fay, this film is a Pre-Code bedroom farce set in Paris. Among the glamorous flappers in the film are the vivacious kewpie doll Joan Blondell, the femme fatale Louise Brooks, and the less-than-glamorous Laura LaPlante who plays the lead’s true love which is a real head scratcher for me.

Love the Art Nouveau stair rail, especially as it centers the second floor landing.
Margaret, that whole area on the landing was a complete surprise. Especially since it was revealed so late in the film. Did you notice the fireplace in the corner? This bachelor’s home is truly a party palace.
Love the fashion and interiors. I want to live in “his house”
Debby, I just watched another similar film last night on TMC called “Bachelor Apartment”. Funny thing is that it was filmed the very same year, 1931, as this post’s film. I will have to located the DVD in order to capture stills to share with y’all.
LOVE films of the 30’s & 40’s. The white rooms, the step-up and step-down rooms and parts of rooms, the decor, etc. THANK YOU so much for your blogs. Please don’t stop posting!
