This movie was so entertaining that I didn't even think about it being silent. The acting was superb and not like the over acting that you sometimes see in silent movies. Even the captions were entertaining, as in the scene when the screen is black and they are talking in the dark. The best part, however, was the orchestral score. It became a character in the story, like the music in King Kong or Jaws. I couldn't find anything about it in the credits, however so I don't know if it is new or original. I want to buy the DVD but not if it doesn't have the score like I heard last night. Does anybody know?
It's back - April 8, 2009
TCM is showing it on Wednesday, April 8, 2009 at 5:30am CST. Since i missed the ending last time. i'm setting my dvr for an additional hour!!
This movie is great, I caught most of it when the Joan Crawford birthday marathon was happening. Who knows when we shall see it again... By the way, the new score is by a new artist named Darrell Raby. (I saw someone had asked this question) Look him up, he has great music. Hopefully sometime soon this movie will be made available to public or will be shown again.-cheers
a thank you to pfcurry
to pfcurry, thank you. i'm looking forward to seeing it again and hope to purchase it. gloria
For some reason, TCM says it runs 60 minutes, but my DVR cut it off at 74 minutes. IMDB.com reports that it runs 78 minutes. The last 10 minutes: Jack admits that he has no money, Allie asks him to leave her alone. Her father comes in and congratulates her on getting rid of him, but she advises that she will not annul the marriage. She receives a letter from Jack and asks her father to leave her alone. The letter says that everything he did he did because he loves her and he gives her his favorite spoon. Clearly, this is leading to a grand reunion... which was cut off when I recorded this movie. Maybe next time.
how does it end!!!
I loved it!! William & Joan are great chemistry together - i see now why they stayed good friends. I set up my DVR and last the last of it so if anyone saw the whole movie please let the ones that missed it know how it turns out.thanks, gloria
I lost the last ten minutes, too.I really loved the music in this- does anyone know where I can find it?
It holds up - even in this modern age!
Loved it! Haines and Crawford are wonderful. The captions were really funny. I was completely entertained and now I want to explore the genre of silent films more. Thank you for showing it!!
