Olive Borden was one of the most beautiful and successful actresses of the 1920s. Unfortunately by 1934 her career was ruined by salary demands and a bad reputation. Chloe, Love is Calling would be Olive's final film. It's a low-budget movie set in the Southern swamps. Olive plays Chloe, the light skinned daughter of a voodoo priestess. Unfortunately the plot has a lot of racist elements and most people give this movie bad reviews. I thought it was an interesting story and I enjoyed seeing Olive (although this is certainly not her best performance). An interesting piece of trivia is that Olive was dating the director of this film Marshall Neilan. If you're a fan of Olive Borden it's definitely worth your time to watch Chloe. It's a public domain film and can be seen for free on You Tube or the Internet Archive. Sadly Olive died penniless in 1947 at the young age of 41.
