TSFF Preview: Our Dancing Daughters (1928)

The Toronto Silent Film Festival kicks off on March 29, 2012 with Our Dancing Daughters. Or maybe I should say it Charlestons off. This 1928 silent classic directed by Harry Beaumont is a jazzy look at the flappers and fops of 1920’s America and stars a very young Joan Crawford. And I mean very young, like she doesn’t have those harsh hard-core eyebrows yet young. Everyone always has really awesome things to say about Our Dancing Daughters, and the problem is I have to just take their word for it, because I have yet to have the pleasure of seeing this one.

I CANNOT WAIT to see it, and thanks be that TSFF is screening it this year! In the meantime, let’s hear from some people who have actually seen the movie:
