Matinée Ladies (1927) - Lost Silent
28 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Bob Ward ( Malcolm McGregor ), a law student in financial straits, accepts work as a paid dancing companion at a roadhouse, where he spends afternoons with women tired of the bonds of matrimony. He meets Sallie Smith ( May McAvoy ), a cigarette girl, and their mutual bond of sympathy grows into love. Tom Mannion ( Richard Tucker ), a wealthy idler who has made advances to Sallie, persuades her to attend a yacht party, while Bob consents to a financial agreement with a Mrs. Aldrich ( Hedda Hopper ), causing a quarrel between himself and Sallie. After uncovering Mrs. Aldrich's true motives, Bob rescues Sallie from the advances of Mannion aboard the yacht during a severe storm. They are picked up by a rescue party and are happily united.

This 1927 silent comedy was produced by Warner Brothers Pictures, starring May McAvoy and featuring Hedda Hopper. A young William Demarest was also in the cast of this sadly now lost film.
