Colleen Moore Shines
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1928 Colleen Moore was the #1 box office star in the country. In 1934 Moore made 3 films and never appeared in films again. Her 1934 Scarlet Letter was a notorious flop, but The Social Register isn't bad at all.

Moore stars as a chorus girl who lands a rich boy (Alexander Kirkland) only to have his bitchy mother (Pauline Frederick) try to separate them. This film, produced by Columbia--a skid row outfit in 1934--has a cheap look to it but Moore is awfully good. She has a few terrific scenes where she shows what she could do if she had had some good scripts, but her early talkies were total duds and she fell from stardom fast.

Frederick is excellent as the mother. Charles Winninger is Jonesy, Margaret Livingston is Gloria, Ross Alexander is Lester, Robert Benchley plays himself, and Donald MacBride is unbilled as the ferry captain.

With better production values this film might have helped Colleen Moore in her quest for a comeback but it was not to be.
