Overview

One of the most delightful of Marion Davies' early talkies, The Floradora Girl is set in New York at the turn of the century. The star plays Daisy Dell, one of the members of the original Floradora Sextette ("O Tell Me, Pretty Maiden") She spends several seasons on stage in this capacity, during which time the other five Floradoras all land wealthy husbands. Daisy's one chance at connubial bliss with handsome young socialite Jack Vibart (Lawrence Gray) apparently comes to an end when she is persuaded by Jack's mother to give the boy up -- not because of class consciousness, but so that Jack can marry a wealthy woman and thereby save his family from bankruptcy. Before the film can metamorphose into a Gay '90s variation of Camille, Jack decides that love is far more important than money, whereupon he makes a surprise appearance in the last act of Floradora to sing his proposal to Daisy. Some of the exterior scenes in Floradora Girl were filmed outside the gargantuan "beach house" built for Marion Davies by her sponsor-lover William Randolph Hearst.
