Movie Info

Set in a not-so-reasonable facsimile of London's Limehouse district, Twinkletoes stars Colleen Moore as the title character, a slum girl who aspires to become a dancer. Enduring one defeat and disillusionment after another, Twinkletoes is about to end it all by jumping into the Thames. She is rescued by Chuck Lightfoot (Kenneth Harlan), a would-be prizefighter who has likewise had his share of hard knocks. Adapted from a notoriously seamy novel by Thomas Burke, Twinkletoes was considerably cleaned up for the screen, if for no other reason than to remain within the good graces of Colleen Moore's fan following. It was one of several Moore vehicles produced by the actress' then-husband, First National executive John McCormick.
