FEEL MY PULSE
A FILM BY: GREGORY LA CAVA
WRITTEN BY: NICHOLAS T. BARROWS, GEORGE MARION JR.
STARRING: BEBE DANIELS, RICHARD ARLEN, WILLIAM POWELL
Co-presented by Chicago Film Society
Bebe Daniels began her acting career at the age of seven; by fourteen, she was a frequent co-star of Harold Lloyd and by the end of the silent era, Daniels had become a star and accomplished comedienne in her own right. This rollicking comedy that offers Daniels a wonderful showcase for knockabout antics and subtler character work. Hypochondriac heiress Daniels to an island sanitarium where everything is not as it seems. The doctor (William Powell) is really a bootlegger in disguise and all the attendants, save for undercover reporter Richard Arlen, are lieutenants in his rum-running army. You'll never look at surgical equipment the same way again.
