Sheet music for The Show of Shows (1929).

In 1929, Irène Bordoni made two movies with Warner Bros., Paris and The Show of Shows, but the studio concluded that Paris wasn't grossing that much, so it decided to stop making movies with her. She continued making a few other movies with small roles, but never became a big star.
