The Joy Girl (1927) is an American two-strip Technicolor silent comedy film directed by Allan Dwan, released by Fox Film Corporation, starring Olive Borden, Neil Hamilton and Marie Dressler, and based on the novel of the same name by May Edginton
Jewel Courage (Borden) rejects a suitor (Hamilton), whom she thinks is a chauffeur, in favor of a man she thinks is a millionaire. It transpires that the roles were, in fact, reversed; Hamilton is the millionaire and the other man a chauffeur. Jewel is crushed but manages to do well for herself in business, until she and the real millionaire find themselves reconciled.
Location filming took place in Palm Beach, Florida. Either part or all of the film was shot in Technicolor. It was the last film to be shot in the second Technicolor process ("System 2"), before the company's implementation of a new, improved format in 1928.
