Audience Reviews for Moran of the Lady Letty


Moran of the Lady Letty (1922) Another Rudolph Valentino silent film. This movie is another effort to make Valentino a more macho character rather than his lithe effete self. Maybe not as good as The Sheik (1921) or Blood and Sand (1922), but Moran of the Lady Letty is almost a swash buckler. Ramon Loredo (Valentino) is a bored, rich, socialite who is tired of the throngs of love-sick debutants and cotillions. He longs for something else. Ramon was late getting on board a yacht on the San Francisco bay is shanghaied and brought to a square-rigger smuggling ship run with an iron fist by Captain Kitchell (Walter Long). Our tomboy heroine, Moran Sternerson (Dorothy Dalton) is the fellow crew member with her Captain Father on board their ship the Lady Letty. On their way sailing south their ship's cargo of coal catches fire. Ramon rescues Moran and the Captain Kitchell tries to salvage Moran's ship as it burns up. Captain Kitchell has got some plans for Moran. Maybe selling her into white slavery to his Mexican partner, Pancho (Cecil Holland).
