Chorus girl falls for rich guy.
28 March 2003 | by (Culpeper, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This film starts out with a great meet-cute, wherein chorus girl Patsy Shaw (Colleen Moore) crashes a society bash and steals the necktie of wealthy Charlie Breene, thereby winning first prize at Robert Benchly's party across the street. Romance ensues, Charlie's mother (Pauline Frederick) tries to break it up, love prevails. Not great, but Colleen Moore gets to sing and dance a little.
