Fig Leaves is a 1926 American silent comedy film directed by Howard Hawks, released by Fox Film Corporation, and starring George O'Brien and Olive Borden. The film had a sequence, a fashion show, filmed in Technicolor. A print of the film survives in the film archive of the Museum of Modern Art.
A married couple is juxtaposed in the Garden of Eden and in modern New York City. The Garden of Eden humorously depicts Adam (played by George O'Brien) and Eve (played by Olive Borden) awoken by a Flintstones-like coconut alarm clock and Adam reading the morning news on giant stone tablets. In the modern day, the biblical serpent is replaced by Eve's gossiping neighbor and Eve becomes a sexy flapper and fashion model when Adam is at work.
