I am shocked– SHOCKED– to find silent movies being covered here!
Ernst Lubitsch’s skill with sight gags is displayed when Jean Hersholt loses his cuff in The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg. It’s a relief that collars and cuffs are not longer a separate item from shirts.
Corinne Griffith has a nasty shock when she discovers that her puritan dress is anything but prim when the lights are right. If you haven’t seen The Garden of Eden, do so at once!
We’ve had some surprisees but here is the surpriser in Tiger Rose. Ooo, those sneaky Mounties!
Seven Keys to Baldpate is a rare surviving George M. Cohan film and it’s also valuable to anybody who wishes to see Hedda Hopper’s corpse being schlepped around like a silent Weekend at Bernie’s.
Read my review here. I also cover the 1980s remake, House of the Long Shadows.
