Adam's Eve (1929) Johnny Arthur, Frances Lee

Postby Richard M Roberts » Fri Jan 17, 2020 4:16 pm

Here's an early Al Christie talkie released by Paramount October 12, 1929, directed by Leslie Pearce, and featuring Johnny Arthur, Geneva Mitchell, Adrienne Dore, Paul Powell, and at least one of Christie's silent stars he kept on after dumping the rest of them in the switch to talkies, Frances Lee. Lee seemed to like to appear onscreen in her underwear, or Christie like to have Lee appear onscreen in her underwear, who are we to complain:

Thanks for posting! Do many of Johnny Arthur's silent shorts still exist? I've only seen two of them.

I've got prints of MY STARS(1925), HOME CURED (1926), OPEN HOUSE (1926), and SCARED SILLY (1927), THE DRAW-BACK (1927) with Johnny and another early John Wayne appearance can be found on youtube, and of course, there's THE MONSTER (1925), which, despite all the talk about Lon Chaney Sr., actually stars Johnny Arthur.
