It
Clara Bow stars as a shop girl whose romantic relationship goes awry when local rumors pin her as an unwed mother. Influential in redefining the mores of sexuality on screen, Bow became the 'It' girl and one of the most famous flappers of the '20s.

A science fiction classic, Metropolis is set in a futurist urban dystopia where humans are divided into the thinkers and the workers. When the leader of the workers falls for the son of the thinkers, order unfolds into chaos and revolution begins.
