Eve's Leaves (1926) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Leatrice Joy, William Boyd, Robert Edeson, Walter Long, Richard

Carle

Directed by Paul Sloane



Print: black/white

Runtime: 75 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



If Eve's Leaves has the "look" of a Cecil B. DeMille production, it's

because DeMille himself functioned as producer. Salty sea captain Robert

Edeson tries to keep his daughter Leatrice Joy away from men, but the

rambunctious Joy yearns to experience such forbidden pleasures as

kissing. When Edeson's ship docks at a Chinese port, both Joy and

seaman William Boyd are captured by river bandits. The bandit chieftain

hopes to take Joy as his bride, and to secure her compliance he binds

Boyd hand-and-foot and prepares to subject the poor boy to torture. Joy

takes this opportunity to steal a kiss from the helpless Boyd, whereupon

a melodramatic scene becomes a comic one -- just as the stage play upon

which this film was based was essentially a comedy. Captain Edeson

rescues the lovers in the nick of time, admitting that it was a big mistake

to keep his daughter locked up and agreeing to allow her to live her own

life from now on.
