Fun Size Review: Mantrap (1926)

Clara Bow takes on both Ernest Torrence and Percy Marmont in this battle of sexes, classes and generations. City girl Clara has married backwoodsman Torrence in haste and is at the “repenting in leisure” stage. Things perk up when Marmont shows up and Clara shows him just what made her the IT Girl. Sassy, brash and funny as anything, this film is an ideal showcase for Bow, who manages to steal the show from everyone.


How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

Bow dumps both the boys when they get all paternalistic on her but then returns to the chastened Torrence.

If it were a dessert it would be: Campfire Banana Splits. Zany, tasty and absolutely outdoorsy.
