Mother VS Daughter
5 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dancing Mothers is definitely a product of its time. It is the era of the flapper, when morality flew out the window and people were up for having a good time. Alice Joyce plays Ethel Westcourt, a lonely wife and mother whose family abandons her for the fun of nightclubs. Her daughter Kittens (Clara Bow) is particularly wild and pays far too much attention to playboy Jerry Naughton (Conway Tearle). Ethel decides she's tired of waiting around the house; she takes matters into her own hands and goes to the club her daughter frequents. There, she gets close to Jerry, in an attempt to lure him away from her daughter, but her plan backfires when he falls for her but her daughter just won't let go.

Famous today simply for the presence of effervescent Bow, this movie is an entertaining look into the Roaring Twenties era that she symbolizes. Bow takes up quite a lot of this film, which is exciting, since most of her early appearances are scant at best. Joyce makes a good impression as well; she is beautiful and a competent actress.

The music score provided by Grapevine Video isn't bad at all and suits the film nicely.
