MANTRAP (1926, Paramount) Clara Bow, soon to become the “It Girl” two films later, plays one of her most charming roles as a manicurist married to backwoodsman Ernest Torrence, when a young divorce lawyer comes to town on vacation. The sparks fly in this witty and smart comedy written by Adelaide Heilbron and Ethel Doherty, and directed by Victor Fleming.
