Clara Bow, the "IT" GIRL of Hollywood, who was exploited by her directors and under-paid for all her roles, showed her great talent in this film. Clara Bow played "Dot" Morgan, daughter to Patience Morgan (Marguerite Courtat) "Silas Marner"'22 and Raymond McKee(Thomas Allan Dexter) "Uncle Tom" 1929. If you have never seen a silent screen film with a great actress of all time, view this film and enjoy the great talents of Clara Bow who was given low budget films and never complained, she just wanted to perform from her very heart(Even her own mother tried to Kill Her) and soul and that is all that matter to this great Classic Film Star, who will be remembered forever and ever!
