Patsy, The (MOD)

Pat Harrington (Marian Davies) is the patsy in her family, the forgotten good girl who watches her flirtatious sister collect all the fellas. Gloriously fun and frothy, The Patsy was the biggest hit of Davies' career.

Excellent silent comedy let down by anachronistic score

By Adam

from Chicago

Comments about Patsy, The (MOD):

I wish I could have enjoyed this more (I love Marion Davies in "Show People"), but Warner Achives decided to use the print shown on TCM a decade ago, which unfortunately used a terrible score by composer Vivek Maddala. If only they could have convinced someone of the stature of Carl Davis, or even Robert Israel, to compose a more sympathetic accompaniment...

        The transfer is excellent even though it hasn't seen as much remastering as many other more well-known silent favorites.

          Comments about Patsy, The (MOD):

          The Patsy is a delightfully charming film from the great King Vidor. Marion Davies is hilarious as the kid sister who is always passed over for her older sister. If you're looking to get into silent films or get a friend into them this would be an excellent start.

              Clear image and one to show to friends who may not think they'll like silent films. Marion Davies is extremely engaging and talented. I love this film and I hope more Marion Davies'silent films as well as her sound films will be made available. She was a greatly gifted actress!

                This movie is really funny. In my mind, Marion Davies is and will always be one of the best comediennes that there ever was. This "Cinderella" movie is one of her finest, as well as Marie Dressler's!
