Rarely Seen Publicity Photographs From "Rough House Rosie".

PostThu Dec 21, 2017 6:54 pm

"Rough House Rosie is a 1927 American silent romantic comedy film produced and released by Paramount Pictures and directed by Frank Strayer. The film is a starring vehicle for Clara Bow who was then Paramount's most popular actress. Reed Howes, a model turned actor, is Bow's leading man."

"The film was based on the story of the same name by Nunnally Johnson that appeared in The Saturday Evening Post. The story was adapted for the screen by Max Marcin, with a screenplay by Louise Long and Ethel Doherty and titles by George Marion, Jr. Rough House Rosie is now presumed lost but a 53-second trailer survives."

I just watched Wings 1927 the other day so this film must have been made at about that same time as Clara looks the same in both films. The 60 stills you posted are great. Does any part of the film exist other than the trailer at UCLA archives?

I think the 53 second trailer is all that survives.

From looking at two of the photos shot on location, the hotel is the Vista Arroyo in Pasadena, because the Suicide Bridge can be seen behind them.
