Critic Reviews for The Delicious Little Devil
Delightful romantic comedy with energetic cast and a happy sense of style.
With her bee-stung lips and exaggerated swivel, [Mae] Murray's the precursor to Betty Boop.
Audience Reviews for The Delicious Little Devil
Comedienne and Ziegfeld girl Mae Murray is hammy in the role of Mary, a poor good girl, who pretends to be Gloria, a famous European dancer with a reputation. A hulking butcher boy dated her when she was only of modest means. Valentino is Jimmy Calhoun, the romantic straight man, who becomes a regular at the Inn where Mary improvises her way through a job as dancer. She convinces the manager of the Inn of her reputation by suggesting she caused the scandal reported in the papers involving a Duke. Of course, the Duke ends up in the same town and turns out to be quite a villain. With three men chasing her plus Jimmy's father trying to protect him and her bumpkin father and uncle trying to protect her it gets chaotic at the end. Jimmy gets to be like Prince Charming and save the day.
** (out of four) This early silent film is mostly noteworthy for an early appearance of Rudolph Valentino. Unfortunately it doen't have much appeal beyond that today. Mae Murray is a poor hatcheck girl who loses a job and is forced to take a job as a dancer at a roadhouse.
