THE PATSY (King Vidor, 1928) Closing Night Film
A natural-born comedienne, Marion Davies was largely a habitue of creaky costume drama until director King Vidor convinced her to cut loose in THE PATSY. Davies is hysterical as a neglected daughter trying to win a suitor away from her sister in a middle-class family ruled by a mother who's an inveterate social climber (the wonderful Marie Dressler). An uproarious highlight is Davies's spot-on impersonations of Mae Murray, Lillian Gish and Pola Negri.
