Queen Bee of the Blue Moon

This action crime adventure was filmed before the censoring Hays Office began making the death scenes gentler, so there is more gunfire and death on screen that in most of the gangster movies of the next decades. 1931 automobiles also steal more film time than in most old movies, almost to the point where the cars are the stars. The adventure opens with a 1931 auto chase scene that is reminiscent of the cowboy movies that would follow. In many cowboy movies there is a scene where the lady is on a runaway horse, or in a runaway buggy or stage coach, and the leading man gallops bravely after the frightened lady and saves her from disaster. In the opening scene, our leading man is racing his 1931 convertible through the winding hillside when he spots another convertible ahead, and he notices that the chauffeur is attacking the lady passenger, so he speeds up until the cars are beside each other and jumps from his car into the other car and saves the young lady. . . . . Probably leaving 1931 movie house audiences aghast with satisfying terror. The action scenes, both with automobiles and with blazing guns, will continue throughout the adventure, but it is the lady that steals the show. . . . No, not the young girl who will be the romantic target of the thrill seeking leading man, but rather the young girl’s mother. The best movies have an actor who becomes unforgettable, usually because of a famous line that lives on. Sure, the gangsters are tough in this story, the leading man and the young lady are lovingly cute, but Betty, Bettina Moore, the young girl’s mother, will steal the show. When she looks at the bank robber with steel in her eyes and tells him that she will strangle him to death . . . And laugh while she is doing it, we see power that makes the blazing guns seem harmless. . . . I do NOT want to get on the wrong side of this gal. Priscilla Dean is the actress who delivers the line, and the silent super-star of movies was thought to be washed up and finished when talkies came along. After being one of the biggest box office stars of silent movies, she never got great parts in great movies when sound was added to the action, but from her performance in this story I cannot understand why. Priscilla Dean was born to a stage acting family and acting was in her blood, and some of the silent movies that she starred in were the biggest hits of the day. Unfortunately, once sound became the norm, she was never given big juicy parts, and she would only appear in four more movies after this one. Her husband was Lieutenant Leslie Arnold, an airplane pilot who was one of the first pilots to fly around the world in 1924. Born in New York City in 1896, Priscilla died at the age of 91 in 1987 in Las Vegas. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
