Lady of the Pavements (UK title: Lady of the Night) is a 1929 American silent film directed by D. W. Griffith and starring Lupe Vélez, William Boyd, and Jetta Goudal. Griffith reshot the film to include a couple of musical numbers, making it a part-talkie.
The Vitaphone sound-on-disc system was employed for sound sequences. Discs 6 and 8 are in the UCLA Film and Television Archive. Other sound discs to this film were donated by Arthur Lennig to the George Eastman House Motion Picture Collection in Rochester, New York.
Disgusted that his fiancee, Diane (Jetta Goudal) has been cheating on him, Karl (William Boyd) says he'd rather marry a "street walker" than her. To get back at him, Diane arranges for Nanoni ("Little One") (Lupe Vélez), a singer at a sleazy bar, to pretend to be a Spanish girl, from a convent, to fool him.
