Get Your Man is an American silent motion picture produced by Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation, and released in 1927. The film was directed by Dorothy Arzner and stars Clara Bow, Charles 'Buddy' Rogers and Josef Swickard. The Library of Congress holds an incomplete print of this film, missing two out of six reels.[1][2][3][4] Paramount did not renew this film's copyright in 1955 so the film is now in the Public Domain.

Reception[edit]

Photoplay gave Get Your Man a positive review in their February 1928 issue, saying "Josef Swickard and Harry Clarke [sic] are splendid actors, well cast. Charles Rogers has a boyish appeal that is winning him many friends. This story may be fragile but the photography is beautiful and Clara continues to charm and fascinate." It was rated as one of the best pictures of the month.[5]
