Hysterical
12 August 2004 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

A Bebe Daniels take off on the Harold Lloyd classic "Why Worry?" from 1923. Bebe plays a rich hypochondriac who has been raised to think she's susceptible to all kinds of physical woes, when she is in truth as healthy as a horse. She is thrown into an adverse situation unknowingly (like Lloyd in "Why Worry?"), fraught with danger, but through her ignorance she manages to avoid harm. There she meets a VERY handsome taxi driver and orderly (played by gorgeous Richard Arlen) who seems taken with her, but becomes impatient with her imaginary woes. Lots of physical and situational comedy in the picture and some of the title cards are hysterical. William Powell is very believable as the fake doctor and his debonair and mischievous screen persona was obviously already formed by the time he made this 1928 silent with Bebe. The print is pretty good too, very few artifacts, which is unusual for a silent.

By the way, Bebe looks fantastic in this part. She wears very nice clothes. :)

Definitely recommended. I give it a 9 out of 10.
