Jewel Robbery

1932 / 68min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: WILLIAM DIETERLE

CAST: KAY FRANCIS, WILLIAM POWELL

Rich and bored baroness Kay is snapped out of a coma of luxury when, on a shopping excursion with her husband, she runs afoul of aristocratic and rakish robber William Powell who, with untoward enthusiasm, she allows to tie her up. Spry, sexy, and unusually candid when it comes to exploring the mysteries of mutual attraction, this sparkling little bauble has much more to it than mere surface shimmer.

Preserved by the Library of Congress.

Screening as a part of Kay Francis: The Queen of Pleasure.
