Cinema in the Phase of Private Interest

There is a conception in American science that the life of the American society complies with the algorithm of moods and interests. This pattern is reflected in the cinema which records the swing from "private interest" to "social unrest". The article investigates the phase of the "private interest" of 1918 - 1929, the "jazz" or "prosperity" era and is centered on analyzing the films Why Change Your Wife? (1919, Cecil Blount DeMille) and It (1927, Clarence J. Badger) with Clara Bow, the queen flapper, who has been ignored by Russian film scholars.
