Trivia

In an interview, star 'Louise Brooks' said that director 'Richard Rosson' didn't want to direct this film, and in fact didn't really want to be a director at all: "He'd been Allan Dwan's assistant, and it was an assistant that he wanted to be. During [this picture] he sat sweating, with a trembling script. There wasn't enough Bromo-Seltzer to float him out of his chair." See more »

Rolled Stockings (1927) -- Lost Silent ?
30 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jim Treadway ( James Hall ) disappoints his father in not making the boat crew at college while his freshman brother, Ralph ( Richard Arlen ), makes the team and upholds the family tradition. Both boys are smitten, however, by the charms of Carol Fleming ( Louise Brooks ), but Ralph is handicapped by hazing and strict training rules. On the eve of the big college race, Jim takes Carol to a dance and leaves Ralph burning with jealousy, deciding to brave official disapproval, Ralph goes to the dance and takes a jazzy young blonde ( Nancy Phillips ) to a roadhouse. Jim follows and ejects his brother after a fight and is himself found with the girl. After being acclaimed a hero, Ralph confesses that he is to blame for Jim's disgrace, and Carol finds happiness with the older brother.

Rolled Stockings is a romantic drama set among carousing college students. It was one of a number of similarly-themed films aimed toward the youth market. To add a bit of verisimilitude, Rolled Stockings was filmed largely on and around the campus at the University of California, Berkeley. Local papers of the time reported on the arrival and activities of the film crew and cast. The Richard Rosson-directed film was made for Paramount, and features the Paramount "junior stars." Besides Brooks, its cast includes then up-and-comers Richard Arlen, James Hall, Nancy Phillips, and El Brendel. Rolled Stockings, adapted from an original story idea by Frederica Sagor, proved popular in the summer of 1927 – and not only in the United States. It also played across Latin America and Europe.

The critic for the Ann Arbor Times News, a college town newspaper, appreciatively stated "The three stars, Louise Brooks, James Hall and Richard Arlen are so thoroughly likable and the story so different from the usual line of college bunk, that Rolled Stockings proves to be a delightful bit of cinema entertainment.

Sadly, Rolled Stockings remains on the list of lost silent films.
