before i go absolutely bonkers trying to find out...what movie is it at the 1:17 mark where joan crawford says "hey hey"

 

If the question is about this photo you supplied the film is MILDRED PIERCE and that is Ann Blyth blowing out the birthday candles. Joan Crawford stars in the film, however that is the character Veda ( Ann Bylth in that photo) who plays Joan's daughter in the film

It wasn't;   the users stated:  what movie is it at the 1:17 mark where joan crawford says "hey hey".

 

I believe Our Dancing Daughters is the film.

yes thats true! but i was wondering about the movie clip shown in the video at the 1:17 mark :)

 

"Dancing Lady" (1933)?

All 3 are fine early Crawford films with Dancing Lady being a very interesting one with Clark Gable showing the Gable film persona that would later make him the 'king',   the 3 Stooges in a straight role (well for Larry at least because he a piano player in the film, while Moe and Curry are working stiffs),    and Fred Astaire in a bit part (dancing,  what else).

 

But I still say Our Dancing Daughters is the likely film based on the way Joan was dressed in the scene.

I agree it looks like it could be late 1920's but wasnt ODD a silent film? That's whats so confusing about the clip :o

You're right.  The scene in the clip is from a sound film; both Our Dancing Daughters and Our Modern Maidens have only sound effects but no dialogue, which would eliminate those two possibilities.  It's probably something from the early thirties.

Thank goodness that mystery is solved!  Great work, Azure.

 

I actually watched 3 Joan movies today, none of which was Montana Moon, because I really was curious.  Never would have guessed that was it.

Yes,  great work Azure.    I never would have guessed that women wore that style of pants in Montana.   (or was that on the moon???).    :D

That clip is from Montana Moon (1930).  Here's a photo from the film:

You're welcome, princessjulia.  I'm glad that I could help. 

:)

 

And yes, those pants look awful!! 

 

 

BelleLeGrand1 and jamesjazzguitar - Thanks for your nice words.  James, those pants do look like they belong on the moon, don't they?  LOL

 

slaytonf - Thanks for the info about the pants.  I've seen women wear them in several films, but I never knew that they were called "jodhpurs".
