Movies & Million-Dollar Mansions, and Silents on the Islands


Image: Internet Movie Database

The 1928 film Oh, Kay! was based on a Gershwin musical comedy that takes place in a mansion. While it might seem strange to us that a silent film based on a musical would appeal to audiences, it was popular in smaller towns where the live version of the play had not been performed.


"Colleen Moore sure fire ... Stage show of "Oh Kay" had never reached here, which gave the picture a nice break." [Kansas City theater owner opinion] – "Variety" [New York, New York], September 19, 1928
