THE SILENT TREATMENT: Synthetic Sin

7/11 - 2PM

This super-rare silent stars Colleen Moore, one of the very first Hollywood “flappers,” a hugely talented and popular comedienne who is far less known than she should be, with a number of her films lost and just a few existing titles. Synthetic Sin is vintage Moore at her finest, a romp in which a young woman marries a famed playwright, gets cast to star in his new play and bombs because she’s too unsophisticated. She then attempts to become more worldly wise in order to make it as a serious actor and she checks into a dive hotel in New York and rubs shoulders with gangsters while necking illicit booze: “Let’s you and I make hey-hey while there’s moonshine!” It’s utterly ludicrous and tainted by an unpalatable “blackface” scene, but a sparkling showcase for Moore’s comic skill and charm.
