The Patsy (1928)
Based on the Broadway play, this silent-era comedy stars Marion Davies as Patricia Harrington, the often-overlooked daughter of a family full of socialites. To get noticed, Patsy mimics screen stars Lillian Gish, Mae Murray, and Pola Negri and winds up caught in her flirty sister's romantic entanglements with a millionaire and her current boyfriend--on whom Patsy harbors a secret crush. Orville Caldwell, Lawrence Gray, Jane Winton co-star. 78 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Dolby Digital stereo music score. Silent with music score.
