Oh, those Flapper Girls!
13 June 2017 | by jery-tillotson-1See all my reviews

When we think of silent screen stars, the usual big names jump up--Gloria Swanson, Colleen Moore, Clara Bow, etc. But there was a whole little world of independent studios that showcased lesser known names--like that of Virginia Lee Corbin. Her name is hardly known today among film buffs but in this delightful, satirical tale of Vixen-Comes-To-Small-Town, she's perfectly suited. She's beautiful, lively, wise-cracking and wearing some beautiful Jazz Age frocks. What makes watching this antique from 1927 is the beautiful print and musical score. My copy was so well preserved it looked like the movie was filmed yesterday. There's a great, tinted sequence of a pier fire at a park that's very ambitiously done. The whole cast is attractive and give it their all. Too bad lesser known silent movies like this one are totally forgotten today. They evoke a lost era of talented, beautiful screen hopefuls that never got their big break in a major studio.
