Twinkletoes | Chicago Reader


A box-office champ during the silent era, Colleen Moore has since faded into obscurity, and if this 1926 melodrama is typical of her pictures, I'm not surprised. Set in London's seedy Limehouse district, it follows the travails of a popular but penniless dancer (Moore) whose beloved father, unbeknownst to her, is dealing in stolen goods. After a local boxer (Kenneth Harlan) falls for her, his drunken shrew of a wife (Gladys Brockwell) exacts her revenge by ratting out the father to the police. Moore is a luminous presence throughout—Norma Desmond was right, they did have faces then—but the movie is pitched to the cheap seats. Charles Brabin directed. 78 min.
