Fun Size Review: Tiger Rose (1923)

Have you ever gone into a movie not expecting much and ended up being delighted? That’s the case here. Tiger Rose isn’t on anybody’s best-of lists but it’s a fun, solid Mountie flick and that ain’t nothing.

The biggest surprise is Forrest Stanley, who is usually pretty bland. He’s grand here as the film’s resident Super Mountie. The cinematography is also top notch and the whole thing is just quality mainstream filmmaking. Enjoy!

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

Our Tiger Rose holds Super Mountie at gunpoint so her boyfriend can escape the law but he ends up turning himself in and the couple reunite after he serves his time.

Read my full-length review here.

If it were a dessert it would be: Bee Sting Cake. Old-fashioned as can be but that’s kind of the point.

Availability: Released on DVD.

  1. Tiger Rose spawned one of the best GIFs available at this site, so I’m really good with it. Plus……Mounties 😉

    Over the years, have had some truly memorable Bee Sting Cake at a now defunct, wonderful German restaurant in Van Nuys CA, Hoppe’s Old Heidelberg. Sauerbraten and a Bee Sting slice…delicious! Always necessitated several runs around the block to work it off, but worth it!

  2. In your full-size review, you touched on something that my super-moviefan mother often pointed out: that the heroine, whether half-drowned or rescued from a stampede or car wreck, is almost always clean and neat, with nary a hair out of place. (One notable exception: ‘West of Zanzibar,’ where everybody looks messy and ugly.)

    1. And Carl Sandburg once went on at humorous length about a hero in a wilderness flick sporting a “first class metropolitan haircut.” 😉 Yep, it has been and remains a minor movie problem. “We can’t make our beautiful people UGLY!!!”
