Colleen Moore and That's About It
2 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nothing special in this Broadway story of the 20s. Moore is a hick who comes to New York to be a star. She is befriended by everyone, including an aspiring (Johnnie Walker) song writer and a chorus girl (Alice Lake) with big dreams. She's also taken in by the narrator, a cab driver (Tully Marshall) who tells the story to a failure (Creighton Hale), and his wife (Kate Price). Starts out nicely with some nice camera shots but soon becomes dull and staid. Part of the problem is that Moore never does anything. We see a glimpse of her performing in a splendid Chinese joint, but that goes nowhere. Lake, on the other hand, does a nice dance in a see-through skirt (fringed with fur), but there's not much "show biz" in this Broadway tale. Walker seems a bit dull here, and reminds one of a young Lyle Talbot. There's also an hysterical Italian painter and a couple of dull businessmen, but they add little to the story. Too bad. This film came out the same year as Moore's legendary smash hit, Flaming Youth (now lost), the film that made her one of the biggest stars of the 20s.
