Colleen Moore is one of the greatest actresses and comediennes ever!
Colleen Moore is so charismatic and super-cute,the way she rolls her eyes and carries about with that happy go lucky persona. I found this treasure at Grapevine Video (also available at Happy Video). If you are in the need for a quick and cheer-up movie, this is the one. The plot is simple. Moore plays Irene a girl who lives with an Irish family and is kicked into the work force. The only thing I would change about this movie is that overly long model show. If it was me I would have edit it to two minutes.
