"It (The Boob) was a disaster, I wasn't cut out for slapstick." - Joan Crawford
"The Boob" 1926
Cast: Gertrude Olmstead, George K. Arthur, Joan Crawford (as Jane), Charles Murray, Tony D'Algy, Hank Mann
In one of her first films, Joan Crawford was thrown into the deep end by MGM with this one. The movie sank but Joan Crawford
swam on to bigger and better things. She's the only shining light in an otherwise dull slapstick comedy.
Also known as The Yokel.

The Baltimore Sun canned the film, saying, "A piece of junk...The company has simply covered itself with water and become
soaking wet, for this tale of a half-dumb boy who turned prohibition agent to convince his girl he had nerve is as wishy-washy
as any pail of dishwater."
