Frau Wulf's Movie Pick "The Cheat" 1915, Sessue Hayakawa, Fannie Ward


"The Cheat", 1915, starring Sessue Hayakawa and Fannie Ward (click their names to view their Wikipedia bios). This silent film surprised me how sophisticated and intense it became. And, you've got to see the free for all in the courtroom. I won't tell too much about this film because I don't want to spoil some great moments, but let's just say things get heated.

This is the first film I've seen with Sessue Hayakawa, and if this is a typical film of his, I want to see more. It's quite a film for 1915 - yeah, that's 95 years ago.

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.








Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
