Author: Pamela Short from Canada
19 August 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Patsy Deveau ( Patsy Ruth Miller ), a Follies girl, accompanied by Raymond Tyson ( Charles Gerrard ), a city millionaire, is stopped by a policeman for speeding, while Tyson is paying the fine, Hector Whitmore ( Glenn Tryon ), a small town inventor, imagines he is making a hit with Patsy displaying his inventions, including a car capable of travelling 150 miles an hour and stopping in two car lengths. She pretends to be flattered and casually suggests he see her in New York, he faithfully follows. Tyson persuades her to play along, hoping to sell Hector's car to the fire department, his initial attempt at a demonstration is sabotaged; Patsy, however, disgusted with Tyson, pleads Hector's cause. Hector takes the official on a perilous drive, refusing to stop until the contract is signed. Having thus proved the worth of his wonder car, he wins the contract and Patsy as well.

This 1927 silent comedy/romance was produced by the Universal Pictures Corporation, starring Patsy Ruth Miller. The survival status of Painting the Town is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
