Clever, funny silent romantic adventure comedy.
24 October 2002 | by (Ann Arbor, Michigan) – See all my reviews

This is a "silent" film, the first ever to be shown in Ann Arbor's beautiful Michigan Theater way back in 1928. Of course silent films were not really silent, and even back then the organ that is still there and still operational was played for this feature. Hero For a Night may not have a terribly original plot, but it's filmed and acted well. The visual gags are funny, the titles are clever and there's a fair amount of enjoyable corny puns. While this may not rank up there with the best of silent film comedies of the era, such as Buster Keaton's The General or Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times, it's still a heck of good movie. Patsy Ruth Miller is real purty too. She played Esmeralda in the silent Hunchbank of Notre Dame with Lon Chaney. Burr McIntosh was in D. W. Griffth's Way Down East with Lillian Gish.
