Silent Movie Rule #21: There is no wrong way to dance

Reginald Denny demonstrates that there is absolutely no wrong way to dance in a silent movie. Just put aside your shyness and cut a rug!

Denny is enormously overlooked but he was such a charming comedian and his gentle, witty comedies are a delight. In the case of Oh Doctor!, he plays a stiff and stuffy hypochondriac who is convinced he will die– that is, until he meets his new nurse. She’s played by Mary Astor. Need I say more?

Availability: Released on DVD.
