Before he was an iconic sex symbol, Rudolph Valentino played a variety of roles, including a shy suitor opposite Carmel Myers in this rom-com. The concept is simple: through a web of schemes a pair of prim, unmarried youths are forced to spend the night in the same house, much to their horror.
Myers and Valentino are just as cute as can be but the story is contrived even by romantic comedy standards and they don’t have much to work with. It’s worth seeing but not the best example of the genre during the silent era.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.After their ordeal, Myers and Valentino finally admit their love for one another.
If it were a dessert it would be: Monkey Bread. Just fine but not as nice as from-scratch.
