Description by OLDIES.com:
A conservatory-trained pianist, Colleen Moore was introduced to the silver screen in her late teens with The Savage (1917). She became a major box-office hit by 1927, bringing the "flapper" persona to life with her signature bob hairstyle. Handsome Arizona native Lloyd Hughes made his cinematic mark with famed silents such as Love Never Dies (1921) and the Mary Pickford film Tess of the Storm Country (1922). Vera Lewis enjoyed a prolific film career, beginning with silents in 1915 and making a successful switch to talkies. She was best known for her roles in The Iron Mask (1929) with Douglas Fairbanks and Four Daughters (1938) with Claude Rains. Initially an actor, Alfred E. Green directed numerous films throughout the silent and talkie eras, helming a few for Mary Pickford in addition to Dangerous (1935) with Bette Davis.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 1073 ratings.
Few may remember, but Colleen Mayer was a superstar of the silent film. Her movies were profoundly popular with the public as she was genuinely loved by the movie studios. Her list of directors is a who's who of early Hollywood. Most of her supreme box office hits were produced by her husband John McCormick with the couple distributing through Moore's resident studio First National. They stayed married until his death in 1961. They were Hollywood royalty and often times held court with Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. This version of Ella Cinders is "abridged" but, it is nearly perfect. The musical score is generic, but okay. Highly recommended.
