Trivia

This silent film was based on a hit Broadway musical with songs by George and Ira Gershwin. It contained some of their most famous songs in its stage version, the best known of them being "Someone To Watch Over Me". Strangely, enough, however, it was never remade as a sound film, and the musical has never been adapted for television, live or otherwise. See more »

If you see Oh Kay...
20 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

... you should win the Nobel prize in physics since this film has been lost for many years and you could only have seen it if you invented a time machine and went back to 1928. Only a few humorous still shots remain. If you want to read the review of this and many other lost films that are authentic type "New York Times review Oh Kay" into google and you can then click on the link to the New York Times review of that film written in 1928...by someone who actually saw it.

I've seen some of the stills for this film and it's amazing that in the silent era Colleen Moore looks so glamorous and in the sound era she looks so drab and dowdy...almost like two different people. Her voice was fine. This was the fourth directorial effort by Mervyn LeRoy, who directed so many diverse films throughout his career. It's a shame you have to get to film number seven in the list of films he directed to find one that has survived - 1929's Broadway Babies starring Alice White.
