 Live piano accompaniment by Steve Sterner

(1928) Slumming Broadway star Johnnie Walker gets some laughs trying out for a bottom-of-the-barrel tent show, but actually takes the job when he gets an eyeful of leading lady Bessie Love. Approx. 56 min. 35mm.

Reviews

“A minor gem with major virtues… anticipates Mr. Deeds and Mr. Smith.”
