The Angel of Broadway (1927) - Tragic Loss
12 February 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Babe Scott ( Leatrice Joy ), a cabaret dancer who is constantly searching for sensational material to shock her customers, conceives of burlesquing a Salvation Army girl and attends mission meetings on the East Side for atmosphere. There she meets Jerry Wilson ( Victor Varconi ), an honest truck driver and friend of the Army captain. Although the act is a success, Babe is disillusioned to find Lonnie ( Ivan Lebedeff ), a fellow worker who has been romancing her, stealing her money and making overtures to Big Bertha ( May Robson ), the hard-boiled club hostess. Babe realizes the bad taste of her impersonation, and mutual recriminations follow when Jerry encounters her at the club; but when he finds Babe at the bedside of Gertie ( Elsie Bartlett ), a girl of the streets who, dying, seeks someone to pray for her, Jerry perceives her sincerity, and they are reunited.

This 1927 drama was produced by DeMille Pictures and was directed by Lois Weber, starring beautiful silent screen actress Leatrice Joy. Tragically, The Angel of Broadway is now considered a lost silent film.
