If you thought that sophisticated, sexy adult comedies only happened yesterday, have you got a surprise coming! This romantic comedy is as fresh as tomorrow's blockbuster feature film. It couldn't have been made ten years later, when the Hays Office was censoring motion pictures. One kiss towards the end of the film definately would have been banned by the Hays Office, but in 1925 the motion picture business was a new and fresh frontier and there were no boundaries to the imagination of screen authors.
Pop your white kernel popcorn and grab a beverage . . . and get ready for a romantic comedy that will have you laughing and hoping and wondering what will happen next as Constance Talmadge twists her husband around her little finger with the help of Her Sister from Paris. Helen and Joe are married just long enough to have rousing arguments. It seems that the honeymoon is certainly over, and Joe has lost his ardor for Helen. After a big fight Helen goes home to mother, leaving Joe and his single buddy Bob alone. Bob tells Joe that this is the best thing that ever happened to him - now the boys can go out and kick up their heels like in the old days. Wine, women and song for them now that Helen was gone. Ahhh, but Bob and Joe discover that Helen has a twin sister from Paris who is an exotic dancer, and more beautiful than the rising sun. Sister La Perry is in town tonight, and performing at the big theatre, so Bob and Joe decide to check out her exotic performance. Meanwhile, Helen and her sister from Paris, La Perry decide to give Helen a beauty makeover, and soon Helen is the spitting image of her glamourous sister from Paris. Things start to get complicated as the boys both want to take the sexy sister out after the performance. Of course Helen pretends to be her sister and goes out with Bob and Joe, pretending to be sexy and sophisticated . . . and making a play for both of them with lusty kisses and suggestive word play. Both boys are head over heels after this sexy and seductive girl, and Helen starts to play head games with her hubby Bob, luring him into the bedroom. Will Bob go after the sexy girl he thinks is his sister-in-law, or refuse her advances in favor of his wife? Will Bob's buddy Joe keep lusting after the girl he thinks is from Paris . . . will he maybe actually meet the sister and find his own love? Remember, this is before the Hays Office demanded that every movie should have a happy ending, so all bets are off if you are trying to predict who ends up with whom when this zany and sexy drama roars to its ending, and I'm not telling!
Now, as the opening card says, "Let us leave Paris to the Parisians, and Cairo to the Chiropractors - and enter Vienna, where laughter is lord!"
