I only got to see a very small clip from this film. I must say i am fascinated by Hollywood stories such as the William Desmond Taylor case. I have read a awful lot about the case and have seen several photos of him. However seeing him in motion in this clip i finally saw what a devastating handsome man he was. The film itself seems very melodramatic like most silent films are. But i found it so intriguing to see WDT in motion for first time. I can't really judge the film that well because i only saw a brief 2 minute clip where Taylor and Margaret Gibson sit in a restaurant and he is about to kiss her. But she pushes him away saying 'No, No! thats where SHE kissed me, because she loved YOU!. she points in the other direction looking sad and walks off leaving Taylor alone at the table with his head slumped. From that alone it sounds a little weird. i don't even know what the film is really about. But god what a hunk Taylor was. No wonder Mary Miles Minter was so insanely in love with him. If your a Hollywood history buff like me this will certainly appeal to you, even if you don't get it. However if not than it will just come off as weird.
