Head over Heels is a 1922 American comedy film starring Mabel Normand and directed by Paul Bern and Victor Schertzinger. This is a surviving comedy film at the Library of Congress. The supporting cast includes Raymond Hatton and Adolphe Menjou.
As described in a film magazine, Tina (Normand), an Italian acrobat, is engaged by Sterling (Menjou), a member of a New York City theater company, to come to New York City as a star. She arrives in her native costume and, realizing he has picked a lemon, Sterling asks Lawson (Thompson), his partner, to get him out of the contract. A press agent learns of the situation and agrees to take over the contract. He arranges to have her meet Al Wilkins (Belmore), a patent medicine manufacturer, who is also a motion picture magnet. After being dressed up by a beauty specialist, both Wilkins and Lawson crave her favor. She is in love with Lawson, however, and when he receives a business note from another, she almost breaks up his party by jumping into its midst and fighting Lawson's client. In the end everything is straightened out and there is a "twinkling of wedding bells" finish.
