Girls Running Wild in the Roaring 20's
30 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

New starlet Carole Lombard made about two dozen comedy shorts for producer Mack Sennett in the late 1920's. In most of these films her roles are quite small but she has the lead in RUN, GIRL, RUN a charming and rather fascinating spoof of women's collegiate athletics during the 1920's.

Tiny character actress Daphne Pollard is the coach for the college's team of girl athletes and she has her hands full given the girls spend more time chasing boys than training or taking sports seriously. With her job on the line, Pollard vows to watch over her best runner Lombard who alas appears the most boy crazy of the bunch.

RUN GIRL RUN is one of the better Sennett comedies of the late 1920's and it's nice to see a silent comedy short where the girls dominate it and the guys are are the ones in bit parts. Teenaged Carole doesn't get many gags to handle but clearly she already had a flair for comedy. The delightful Miss Pollard hams it up expertly and gives an excellent performance. Madalynne Field as the token fat girl on the team manages to deftly play up the caricature with good humor and appeal.
