Movie Info

In the midst of the Jazz Age, two friends wrestle with love and liberation. Diana (Joan Crawford) has a flamboyant personality that masks a sweet nature, while Ann (Anita Page) is outwardly reserved, but coldly manipulative on the inside. When Diana sets her sights on the rich, debonair Ben (Johnny Mack Brown), Ann gets competitive, and successfully steals Ben away from her. It's only after they've married that Ben realizes what a cruel person Ann is, and that his heart really belongs to Diana.

    The movie that launched Joan Crawford's career, and which so nicely captured some of the spirit of the flappers in the late 1920's. The scenes of her cutting loose with the Charleston amidst art deco furnishings are certainly the highlight. The plot itself is a pretty thin morality tale. Crawford and Anita Page pursue the same newly minted millionaire, who confuses who is "the pure one" and of course gets it wrong. Perhaps it's understandable, since there is a lot of dancing, legs, and playful kissing of guy friends to go around. There is an undercurrent of the double standard common for the time (how interesting this was made in the same year Woolf gave her 'A Room of One's Own' speeches); Dorothy Sebastian plays another character who must live down her past, and convince her husband to forgive her for it. The movie is silent and not in the greatest shape anymore, but that might have added a little to its charm. It's also interesting to see the short hairstyles, cloche hats, and the dialog: Offering a drink: "Li'l hot baby want a cool li'l sip?" After a big kiss: "What a service station *you* turned out to be!" By the shoreline, to a pretty song; ah youth: "It's such a pleasant thing - just to be alive!" "You want to taste all of life - don't you?" "Yes - all! I want to hold out my hands and catch it - like the sunlight."

    Our Dancing Daughters, from MGM in 1928 is a delightful silent screen gem starring the great Joan Crawford. Joan Crawford plays Diana whom is the life of the party and the it of the young flappers. Diana meets a wealthy young man named Ben whom instantly gets her attention. The only problem is that one of her friends named Ann (Anita Page) also likes him and wants to land a wealthy man which Ben flips the bill. Both ladies battle for the love and attention from Ben....watch the classic which has many great dance numbers with Joan Crawford and to find out if either lady wins him over.
