Quick Overview


Ernest Torrence, Mary Astor, Noah Beery, Cullen Landis, Phyllis Haver


Directed by James Cruze


Writers By Booth Tarkington


Print: Black and White

Runtime: 66 min

Genre: Comedy

Language: English



Grapevine Video has a more than decent VHS of James Cruze's wonderful movie. A very, very handsome Cullen Landis plays a peaceful Northerner who is turned down by his Mississippian girlfriend, because he doesn't see the point in fighting duels. So he goes to the awesome Ernest Torrence (the guy who all too memorably beat Richard Barthelmess to within an inch of his life in 'Tol'able David')to toughen up. Torrence teaches him to command respect without ever firing a shot or even slapping anyone. The secret is to be able to make people sit down, when you tell them to, and Landis gets to be a specialist! It is all so funny and well-scripted and elegantly paced, and all performers are excellent, not least Mary Astor, a teenager at this point in her life, who is giggly and wiser than words as the baby sister of Landis' girlfriend.
