    Looks interesting, and seems to be hardly seen. Thanks, Jon!

    I know next to nothing about Otsep only what little there is on IMDB. This film is fun with some striking bits in it. Jacqueline Francell is the runaway school girl hoping to make her fortune in Paris and thus setting off a chain of mistaken identities that the plot is hinged on. This plot device became somewhat tiresome but was redeemed by the camera work particularly the closeups and the use of crowds as a counterpoint to the action of the film.
    Thank you Jon for providing this -it might spur some interest in other Otsep films
