WHY BE GOOD? (1929)
“Why Be Good, When It’s So Much More Thrilling To Be Bad?” asked the ad campaign for this slightly naughty and oh-so knowing celebration of the flapper era. Vivacious Colleen Moore, then America’s highest paid actress and top box office draw, wonderfully captures the rebellious flamboyance of the ‘20s. Playing shopgirl, Pert Kelley, a flapper of rather dubious reputation, she wins the heart of her boss’s son. The boss doubts her sincerity, however, so he and his son agree to orchestrate an elaborate test of her virtue. SILENT w/Vitaphone score of '20s jazz and pop. Not rated. 84 minutes.
