Stylish, warm-hearted flapper comedy one of Moore's finest
Quintessential flapper Colleen Moore shines brightly in the darling Orchids and Ermine, a bubbly comedy with a title that perfectly matches its Roaring Twenties sensibility. As Pink Watson, a lowly hotel telephone operator who falls in love with an oil millionaire without even knowing it (the wealthy businessman has traded places with his valet to escape relentless gold diggers), Moore shows off indomitable spirit with a razor-sharp tongue to match -- courtesy of Ralph Spence's inter-titles. The energetic Moore has a unique gift for silent screen humor, and Orchids and Ermine, with a bounty of misunderstandings, will not disappoint those in search of a Jazz Age romantic comedy served up with plenty of heart to go along with its fizz.
