Why Be Good? (1929) - I'd Be Disgraced Director William A.

Great Lover, The (1931) - She Needed Plenty Of Soap Opera star Paurel (Adolphe Menjou) returned to New York, encounters his understudy Carlo (Neil Hamilton) then helps the boss Stapleton (Hale Hamilton) trick his moody ex-lover Savarova (Olga Baclanova) into appearing with him in the next production, in The Great Lover, 1931.

Laughing Sinners (1931) - Romeo With a hard-to-attribute novelty number about a chicken named Romeo, Joan Crawford as night club performer "Ivy" is 27, bright, charming and a creditable dancer, later joining her nervous boyfriend (Neil Hamilton), in MGM's Laughing Sinners, 1931, .
