Movie Info

My Best Girl was adapted from the musical comedy of the same name -- minus the music, of course. Max Figman stars as Dickie Vanderfleet, perennial college student. Lois Meredith co-stars as Dickie's sweetheart, the daughter of his chemistry professor. To protect a fellow student, Dickie hides a co-ed in his dorm room and is promptly expelled, putting him on the outs with the heroine. Disconsolately, our hero plans to sail to Europe, but during his farewell party he gets into a fight with a bully. Mistakenly believing he's killed his opponent, Dickie switches identities with his chauffeur -- who turns out to be an army deserter! Arrested by the MPs, Dickie is forced to don uniform and take up residence in an Army post. Just when things could not possibly get any worse, Dickie is suddenly exonerated of all his so-called crimes and reunited with his girl.

Just a run-of-the-mill conventional Hollywood crowd-pleasing romantic comedy.

Audience Reviews for My Best Girl

Although the romance in the film is as predictable as ever, this movie has charm and humor, and great actors. I really enjoyed it and I recommend it.

This movie was made in 1927 but made the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival, not sure the history behind this one or why it made a film festival in 1997, but do know it had the very beautiful Mary Pickford in it, and its a silent film, all in all its an enjoyable film and a step back in time. Overall 2 1/2 stars.
