Funny 1928 Silent Comedy
24 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bebe Daniels stars as a hypochondriac heiress who retires to her family's sanitarium for a rest. Her Texan uncle says what she really needs is adventure and romance--not a rest cure. On the boat trip to the rest home, which is on an island, Bebe runs into hunky Richard Arlen (a dead ringer for a young Harrison Ford) who zooms her across the sea--just the beginning of Bebe's adventures. The rest home is actually a bootlegger's paradise run by fake doctor William Powell. Lots of complications and plot twists with Arlen actually an undercover reporter. Bebe looks great and is very funny. She had once been Harold Lloyd's leading lady in a series of films, so she knew comedy. Powell is appropriately hammy as the doctor; Arlen is handsome as the leading man; Charles Sellon is the caretaker. All good fun. Bebe Daniels is best remembered for her talkies 42nd Street and the first Maltese Falcon with Ricardo Cortez as well as her long marriage to Ben Lyon. With this film Bebe Daniels joins Colleen Moore and Marion Davies as the best silent comediennes.
