Vernon and Swanson Make a Keystone Klassic
30 September 2007 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Bobby Vernon (as Robert Knight) is a fickle-hearted youth. His girlfriend Gloria Swanson (as Gloria Dawn) lives down the hall with her dog Teddy (a Great Dane). Ms. Swanson's guardian is rascally Wallace Berry (as Henry Black); he is also in charge of Mr. Vernon's estate, which he is stealing from. In order to protect, and enhance, his stolen wealth, Mr. Berry plots with buxom sister May Emory - the two agree Ms. Emory will lure the unsuspecting Vernon into marriage.

Vernon excels in this film; particularly, watch his performance when proposing to Emory - his expressions, and word-perfect reading, make him easily understood. It's a great scene. Vernon's dance at the hotel (again, with Emory) is another highlight. Swanson and Berry (who married in real life) are terrific, as well. The production is first rate, including a beautifully photographed storm, and an exciting comic climax. Hang on as Vernon and Teddy take a bicycle to rescue Swanson from an approaching train!
