The Girl With the Hat Box


(Boris Barnet, 1927).
This charming housing-shortage comedy is Russian director Boris Barnet’s best-known movie, mainly because it features the future failed Hollywood star Anna Sten, here a Soviet Kewpie doll with bee-stung lips, working for a shady, profiteering milliner.
