Silent film STAR Mae Murray



 


Silent film STAR Mae Murray

4 film classics, 3 DVDs

Mae Murray is (the) Delicious Little Devil (1919) & Mademoiselle Midnight (1924)

The barely-remembered comedy (Delicious Little Devil) Mae Murray turns in a cute little comic performance as a dizzy girl who supports her extended family by taking a job as a dancer in a roadhouse, appropriating the reputation of a notorious vampire. Rudolph Valentino is featured as the playboy son of a wealthy building contractor who becomes fascinated with the incognito dancing girl ...

Mae Murray’s winning performance is reminiscent of the comical performances of Mary Pickford and Mary Miles Minter, with her pouty, silver-lidded makeup and her mugging, girlish mannerisms all played to the hilt. Valentino is nondescript in this stock role that predates his success as a mysteriously foreign ladykiller. We really enjoy the spare comic performance of Mae’s roadhouse maid, played by an anonymous actress. — Carl Bennett

Mademoiselle Midnight is a 1924 film starring Mae Murray and directed by the star's then husband, Robert Z. Leonard. The film was written by Carl Harbaugh and John Russell and was the first release of MGM after the amalgamation, having been produced by Metro under the Tiffany Productions banner, owned by the couple.

A Mormon Maid (1917)

This silent melodrama is set against the 1840s westward migration of the Mormons. Dora, a young woman, and her family are saved from an Indian attack by a Mormon community traveling to Utah. They join the wagon train. Dora is pursued by two men, one a recent convert, the other a scheming elder with a stable of wives. The Mormon elder wants her in his harem. When the mother kills herself from revulsion toward polygamy, the daughter must consider her own future and the man she loves.

One of Mae Murray's few surviving films, this was intended by Robert Leonard to be a thoughtful drama about the goods and evils of Mormonism

The Merry Widow (1925) John Gilbert; Directed by Erich Von Stroheim

American silent MGM romantic drama film and black comedy directed and written by Erich von Stroheim. The film stars Mae Murray, John Gilbert and Roy D'Arcy. Joan Crawford and Clark Gable had uncredited roles in the film.
