Directed by Allan Dwan

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 
 
Audio commentary by Frederic Lombardi, author of Allan Dwan and the Rise and Decline of the Hollywood Studios 
 
Booklet essay by film historian Imogen Sara Smith
