Double Feature with THE BIG HOUSE

(1932) dir Jack Conway w/Jean Harlow, Chester Morris, Lewis Stone, Leila Hyams, Una Merkel, Charles Boyer; Anita Loos scr [79 min; 35mm]
In this outrageous pre-code comedy, Anita Loos writes a character for Jean Harlow that practically tops them all. Harlow plays Lil Andrews, a woman who is an expert at using her physical assets to get ahead in life. Over the course of the film, she seduces four men, breaks up a marriage, and tries to kill someone… and yet, in the end, she gets to be exactly who she wants.
