Selling the Silents #15

From the 1927 Paramount release book
(An Eric Pommer Production, Directed by Rowland Lee, Starring Pola Negri)

A sensational special from Hall Cain's surging novel of emotion and conflicks, 'Woman of Knockaloe.'

Imagine one beautiful woman on an island with hundreds of hostile prisoners, hating them and then falling madly in love with one of them. Cast at present includes Clive Brook, Einar Hanson, Claude Gillingwater and Clyde Cook."

If you're in the mood to see Barbed Wire on the big screen, and you're anywhere near the heartland, you can always pop by Cinevent in Columbus, Ohio May 27-30, where other highlights will include Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell making their all-talking, all-singing debuts in Sunny Side Up (also with El Brendel!), and Clara Bow and Kay Francis showing off some Dangerous Curves.

Stephen, I'd be remiss (and our pal Frederica would be angry) if I didn't request that you get a Nita Naldi picture up post haste. And maybe a Kay Fwancis?

Sadly, neither were at Paramount in 1927. But maybe I can find them in my next series, which starts up when I get through the Paramount book...
