Boarding school has never been more fun! When young Ginger (Olive Thomas) begins to display a penchant for a daring lifestyle, her father decides to reign in her behavior by sending her off to boarding school. Run by the strict Mrs. Paddles, will Ginger and her classmates be tamed? Or will the appeals of the flapper lifestyle prevail in this classic silent film from 1920? Iconic for depicting the flapper lifestyle, The Flapper was the first film in the United States to portray the popular 1920s fad. (BW)
