Editorial Reviews

That little number called Angel Face (Norma Shearer) is sure a cutie. No wonder men lose their hearts to her...just before they lose their wallets! Draped in Adrian gowns and exuding saucy charm, Shearer makes her last silent film a fun one, portraying a tough cookie who falls among thieves even shadier than she is, cons them at their own grifts and marries what she thinks is a wealthy young son of the South. (She got the young and South parts right.) But love conquers all, and she opts for penniless wedded bliss - until her old partners in crime show up and threaten to spill the beans. But they're still no match for Angel Face.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This is Norma Shearer's last silent film and is an unpretensious but entertaining tale of city -slicker con artists in competition with each other to scam bo-hunks from the "sticks". Norma plays Dolly - aka "Angel Face" who we meet at as hotel switchboard "operator" using her charms to entice a naive, wealthy, older married man who as the sub-title informs us "has more dollars than sense".

Her two former "partners in scam" also have their eye on her prospective victim. The rivals spot each other and "Angel Face" beats a hasty exit from the hotel where she is almost immmeaditely picked up the cops. But the cops are phonies, hired to deliver her to Bradley {Lowell Sherman} and Gwen {Gwen Lee}who know she is an escaped parolee. With a wry grin, Dolly has no choice but to join them and sets up the scam with the "sucker" at his hotel. Bradley posing as her "brother" will break into the room at the crucial moment and and the married man will pay blackmail - 10,000 dollars is their goal.

The scam works, Bradley collects the money but is going to scam Dolly out of her cut of the loot by claiming that their mark refused payment. Dolly anticipates their move and by being one step ahead, outmanuvers them and makes off with all the loot for which Bradley swears to get even. Dolly is next seen working her wiles at an Atlantic City convention for construction / cement where she overhears a contractor Steve Crandall {Johnny Mack Brown} talking about million dollar deals and the big estate that he lives on. Her assuption is that he is "loaded" and she decides to marry him.

This is in response to the previous review about these movies being bootlegs: this is not a bootleg. This film along with hundreds of others have been released through the Warner Brothers Film Archive. You can verify this yourself by visiting the Warner Brothers website and searching for "archive".

Literally hundreds of films that were previously unavailable before can now be bought & even be viewed on demand.

For an example: All of the Joan Crawford & Clark Gables films; Possessed, Chained, Dance Fools Dance, Forsaking All Others, Love on the Run, Laughing Sinners which were only available on vhs (and rare at that) are all available on the warners page and also here at amazon *though more expensive through amazon.

2 films already released were Strange Cargo & Dancing Lady. Joan Crawford & Clark Gable made 8 films together and I thought I'd only live to see 2 of them. As soon as WB announced they were opening the vaults I placed orders!

Another AWESOME example is the one Greta Garbo film not in the TCM Archives Box Set: Wild Orchids is available through the Warner Bros Archive. This also happens to be my favorite.

Again these films are not bootlegs and are very crisp and clear in video & audio. However I can see how someone might make that mistake because there are NO & I mean absolutely NO extras on the dvd - WB makes them as DVDR to order and is very clear about that on their website. You don't get a chapter listing (through you can use your skip button to go either forwards or back) or a menu or anything.
