Loretta Young - Star of the Month

Road to Paradise

A gangster-y, pre-Code "princess and the pauper" storyline has a 17-year old Loretta Young playing two roles, naughty and nice. Two thieves (Raymond Hatton and George Barraud) sense opportunity when they realize their adopted daughter Mary (Young, with beret and dangling cigarette) looks a lot like ravishing heiress Margaret Waring (Young in silk and marcel waves). They hatch a plan wherein their gal Mary gains entrance to the Waring family compound by pretending to be Margaret. But the plot thickens when Margaret's fiance George (former Arrow Collar model Jack Mulhall) realizes he can tell the difference -- and he prefers Mary. Director William Beaudine remade his own movie Cornered (1924) when accepting this assignment from First National, the newly acquired subsidiary of Warner Brothers.
