I took a chance and I have to say I thoroughly loved this movie!
NHMovieLover
Joan Crawford was at her greatest in this silent film, a film that brought her closer to fame and made her the "It" girl for her dancing skills and beauty.
Vmonterroso.
Look also for solid performances by Edward J. Nugent as Freddie and Kathlyn Williams as Ann's mother.

"Our Dancing Daughters", the epitome of everything we have come to expect from the 1920's Jazz Age, fast cars, fast dancing, high energy and life led at top speed came along surprisingly late in that decade and was the film that really saw the emergence of Joan Crawford as one of Hollywood's top stars. Prior to this film she had appeared in almost twenty silent films and played leading lady to some of MGM's biggest male stars including Ramon Novarro (Across to Singapore),Lon Chaney (The Unknown), John Gilbert (Twelve Miles Out), and William Haines (West Point). This film however moved Joan forever out of leading lady roles into true stradom that she enjoyed in her illustrious career for the next 50 years.
"Our Dancing Daughters", relates the interwoven lives of three young women that are typical examples of Jazz Age "Flappers". Dangerous Diana (Joan Crawford) is a well heeled young socialite who leds a frantic life of dancing and hard partying. Very extroverted and socially mobile Diana's wild exterior actually conceals a kindly nature and a genuine care for the feelings of others. Her friend Ann (Anita Page in her most stunning performance),is the exact opposite in both appearance and personality. Outwardly demure and childlike, this facade actually conceals a selfish and nasty character who will go to whatever lengths are needed to get what she wants. When Diana begins to get serious on wealthy Ben Blaine (Johnny Mack Brown) Ann, jealous of the relationship also sets her sights on him .

This was the big break-through movie for Joan Crawford and she's exciting to watch as a young, high-spirited jazz baby of the late Jazz Age. However, it's Anita Page who constantly catches the eye in her flashy subordinate role of the alcoholic bad girl. Anita also conspicuously stole the thunder from Bessie Love in "Broadway Melody" in l928, which won Best Picture of the year. Why she never became a great star is one of the biggest mysteries in HOllywood history. She alleges Louis B. Mayer wanted her to be a real-life goodtime gal. She resisted. She also changed agents when Broadway Melody became an international smash hit and naturally wanted more money and better roles. Mayer hit the ceiling and deliberately threw her into lack lustre parts, brutally throttling her rising stardom. Anita can be seen on cable TV's "Mysteries and Scandals" now and then. She's also a major character in the bio about her great buddy, William Haines "Wiseacre". Page shoulda been one of the greatest stars of them all. Watch her strut her stuff in this wonderfully Jazz Age flick and especially in Broadway Melody where she not only sings and talks but dances--and steals the picture from everybodyl.

Format: VHS Tape
Wealthy and flashy Diana falls hard for Ben Blaine--who unjustly interprets her vivacity as looseness and in turn falls hard for prim and proper Anne--who is in fact a vicious gold digger with a heart of stone. Will Ben ever see through Anne's facade and realize Diana's true worth?

Directed by Harry Beaumont with sets by the legendary Cederick Gibbons, OUR DANCING DAUGHTERS was bright, sharp, pretty to look at, and just sexy enough to make the censors fume--the type of film that MGM seemed to produce by the bushel during the late silent era. The studio expected it to perform well, but there was no reason for anyone to think it would generate more than passing interest, much less a legendary star. But it did.

Born in 1904, Lucille Le Sueur endured a hardknocks childhood to become a popular chorus girl in New York night spots before signing with MGM in 1925--and renamed Joan Crawford she churned out some two dozen films in three years without setting the world on fire. Until, that is, MGM allowed her dance on table tops and despair of winning her true love in this slickly produced, well acted, but essentially formula melodrama. And even today it is still possible to see what all the fuss was about: not only was she bursting with youthful energy and appeal, it was the first film in which Joan Crawford really LOOKED like Joan Crawford, and although still limited her acting chops weren't half bad either.

The overall cast is particularly strong, with Anita Page turning in a memorable performance as the pretty but wicked Anne and Dorothy Sebastian as Bea, a good girl with a few missed steps in her past; male leads Johnny Mack Brown, Nils Aster, and Edward J.

I'm not really a Silent movie fan, but I had been curious about the Fashion-Style, Art-Decors, Hair-Style and actors: John Mack Brown ( A Lady of Chance; (1928) , Classic Westerns: Johnny Mack Brown Four Feature) (as Ben), Anita Page ( Are You Listening?, Speedway (1929)) , Joan Crawford, Nils Asther, and the male love-interests: Robert Livingston ( Zorro - Bold Caballero) , Fred MacKaye, Bert Moorhouse, Gordon Westcott.

In few words: i liked this love story which is presented on DVD with original film score.

The DVD:

- presented on DVD with original film score.

- Picture quality of course is not perfect but for a NOT restored/remastered pretty well and definitive watchable.

- the sound is in mono of course but its nice to listen (original score).

big plus: the DVD cover-motive contains a movie poster motiv!
