ZAZA (1923) (BLU-RAY)

Gloria Swanson is all flounce and swagger as Zaza, a street gamine turned music hall star, strutting her stuff, tossing off quips and taunts with her irrepressible backside, which is sometimes adorned with a pert bow for emphasis. Over the course of the film, directed by Allan Dwan (Robin Hood), she engages in two knock-down drag-out cat fights, frisks through playful love scenes, writhes in a hospital bed, nurses a broken heart, and evolves into a soberly dignified woman. Her physicality dominates the film, which does not suffer from being essentially a well-crafted frame for her performance. Swanson’s ebullience in Zaza was unfeigned; she called it “the fastest, easiest, most enjoyable picture I ever made.” — Imogen Sara Smith

Piano score composed and performed by Jeff Rapsis, adapted from the original 1923 cue sheet
