~The Latest From Paris~
1928
~348-59: Bert Roach & ?~
~Plot Synopsis~
The Latest from Paris takes place in New York's garment district, where business rivals Blogg (George
Sidney) and Littauer (Tenen Holz) have been carrying on a feud for years. In the tradition of Romeo and
Juliet, heroine Ann Dolan (Norma Shearer) works for Blogg, while her sweetheart Joe Adams (Ralph
Forbes) is employed by Littauer. Without the knowledge of either boss, Ann and Joe develop their own
clothing line, with Ann serving as model. The happy result of all this industrial intrigue is a merger -- in
every sense of the word. It was during filming of The Latest From Paris that Norma Shearer became the
wife of MGM production chief Irving Thalberg.
