Colleen Moore on a Bus in the Rain
18 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cute comedy with Colleen Moore as a switchboard operator at a fancy hotel who meets an oil millionaire from Oklahoma but she thinks he's the valet. Not a great comedy but perfectly OK with a nice performance by Moore, who by the late 20s was one of the biggest box office draws in movies.

Several good scenes save this but is seems a bit sluggish and slow to get going. Jack Mulhall plays the millionaire, Sam Hardy is the valet, Gwen Lee is Ermintrude the "friend," Hedda Hopper plays the sales lady, and 7-year-old Mickey Rooney plays a midget! Moore is very good once the story gets rolling, a natural comic and film actress, she could be beautiful or look like Harry Langdon. Her trademark hair-do made her stand out. The rest of the cast is fine in this little comedy.

Orchids and Ermine was a big hit, but not as big as Lilac Time in 1928, which was a smash! Unfortunately Colleen Moore flopped in a series of badly made semi-talkies and a few attempts at talkies.
