Swanson in a Subway
24 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gloria Swanson did everything in films from Mack Sennett comedies with Charlie Chaplin to the high drama of Queen Kelly and Sunset Boulevard. Manhandled is a drama with comedy. Shop girl Swanson works at a department store and lives in the same tenement as boyfriend Tom Moore, a mechanic with big ideas. By chance she is spotted by the store owner (Arthur Housman) and invited to a party along with pal (Lilyan Tashman). A chorus girl (Ann Pennington) does a snazzy dance so Swanson does her impersonation of it, losing her underwear. Later she impersonates a Russian Countess. The owner of a ritzy store (Frank Morgan) offers her a job as a fake Countess to lure customers and Swanson is on her way to big money and big parties. She poses for a famous artist (Ian Keith) but he gets fresh and she keeps getting "manhandled." Meanwhile the boyfriend has gone off to Detroit to sell his new engine part. There is a happy ending.

Swanson is just wonderful as the gum-chewing shop girl, especially in the amazing subway scene. The print I saw did NOT include her famous impersonation of Chaplin (the inspiration for her similar scene in Sunset Boulevard), so that was a disappointment. But it's still a nice little morality tale. And Swanson was an excellent comic actress. It's easy to picture Marion Davies or Carole Lombard in this same role. The male co-stars are all OK but nothing special. Real-life showgirl Ann Pennington appears as herself in the party scene with Brooke Johns.

Originally 75 minutes, but it seems the longest version to survive runs about 69 minutes and is missing that Chaplin impersonation.
