From Grifter to hero...
12 May 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the story begins, Flash (Alan Hale) and the Perfessor (Clyde Cook) are in jail. They apparently are crooked carnies and have been caught doing something illegal once again. When they learn that a lady is looking for HONEST carnies, Flash insists they go...figuring the woman must be easy to fool. However, what they don't realize is that Flash learns to care about Cleo (Renée Adorée)...but this will result in Red Moon (the baddie in the story) unleashing his full fury on him and the Perfessor.

This is a very good late silent film. Aside from a few badly used sound effects, it's a silent....among the last ones Hollywood made. But it's also well polished, well acted and enjoyable from start to finish.
