Fun Size Review: Kiki (1926)

The Talmadge sisters are usually divided into Drama = Norma and Comedy = Constance but this romantic comedy proves that Norma could be every bit as funny as her little sister. She plays the title character, a would-be dancer with a crush on her boss.

A standard silent rom-com plot? Well, this time, Kiki tries to get her man by squatting in his luxury apartment and refusing to leave, sowing chaos until his inevitable surrender. Ronald Colman plays the object of her affections. This is a delightful picture from beginning to end, do not miss it!

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

Kiki never leaves and her true love finally surrenders to the force of her personality.

Read my full-length review here. I also cover Mary Pickford’s talkie remake.

If it was a dessert it would be: A Pinata Cake. Think you know what you’re in for? Think again!

Availability: Released on DVD by Kino.
