Bare Knees is a 1928 American silent film comedy drama directed by Erle C. Kenton and starring Virginia Lee Corbin as Billie Durey, the family's black sheep, who returns to her small hometown causing a sensation with her short skirts, cigarettes and other "flapper" accoutrements.[1][2]

An extant film, it is available on DVD (along with the 1928 Hairbreadth Harry comedy "Danger Ahead") from Grapevine Video, transferred from the only known 35mm nitrate print.[3][4]
