Mantrap (HippFest Friday Night Gala)

Reception and Doors from 19:00, ticket includes welcome drinks reception.
Dress code: Roaring-20s, flappers or HippFest glamour!

Clara Bow has ‘It’ and flaunts ‘It’ in this quintessential Roaring Twenties pic starring the silent era’s ultimate flapper.

Country-dwelling Joe (played by Edinburgh-born Ernest Torrence) heads to the big city seeking female company where he encounters flirtatious beauty Alverna (Bow). Alverna makes eyes at Joe (“How she vamps with her lamps,” wrote the Variety critic of the day) and Joe is instantly smitten – whisking her home to the backwoods town of Mantrap as his wife. But small town life doesn’t suit Alverna, and Joe soon learns he has taken on more than he had bargained for.

Victor Fleming (The Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind) directs this entertaining battle of the sexes, allowing the star’s fun-loving, wild and independent spirit to shine.
