An agreeable silent comedy
19 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This silent comedy stars Constance Talmadge (Dorothy Adams) and Ronald Colman (Paul Menford). It begins with a rich American and his daughter, Dorothy, arriving in Britain. The father is naturally wary of fortune hunters hitting on his daughter and one of them is Paul Menford. However, Menford is so smitten by Dorothy that he soon abandons any desire for her fortune--he wants her. Well, the guy's father (Jean Hersholt) has no such qualms and arranges to sell the family manor to the Americans. This way, he figures, they make money from the sale AND Paul will get it anyway once he marries Dorothy! What follows are some misunderstandings and a nice finale- -but what exactly happens is something you'll just have to see for yourself.

The reason I liked this film is that it's a nice combination of romance and humor. It's never a laugh out loud sort of picture-- more just enjoyable and sweet. Worth your time--and with a dandy finale.
