The Broadway melody by ( Visual )

The Broadway Melody offers snarky, wiseacre humor, and effervescent charm. The Mahoney Sisters are successful singers in the boondocks, and now they've come to New York for the big time. Hank (Henrietta) is the smart one, while Queenie is the beautiful one--as Hank's fiancé Eddie Kearns says, they're "a coupla swell kids." Songwriter Eddie gets the girls a part in a revue featuring his song, "The Broadway Melody." Eddie, long engaged to Hank, falls for Queenie, whom he hasn't seen since she was a little girl. But Eddie and Queenie are both devoted to Hank, so Queenie gives in to the wooing of one of the show's rich backers, so as not to come between Hank and Eddie. This only causes more trouble, because both Hank and Eddie know exactly what kind of danger Queenie is courting by putting herself in a playboy's hands

Douglas Fairbanks came from Broadway to the movies in 1915 when high salaries were luring well-known stage actors to the new feature-length pictures. Although most of these performers failed to 'register' on camera and returned to New York, Fairbanks quickly became a supernova. His energetic, optimistic character, his ingratiating smile, his graceful, acrobatic stunts (he did his own), clever writing, and accomplished staging rapidly made Fairbanks one of the most admired stars in the world. The Mystery of the Leaping Fish (1916), a modern-dress comedy, was directed by Christy Cabanne and John Emerson; it stars Fairbanks, Bessie Love, and Allan Sears. Fairbanks plays Coke Ennyday, a cocaine-using scientific detective investigating an opium-smuggling scheme, in this satire of the Sherlock Holmes stories

Silent film directors were a flamboyant breed--pioneers who invented the art of film direction as they went along. Working conditions were chaotic. Open sets were built side by side and back to back, and live "mood" music was provided according to each star's taste. Despite deafening noise and constant distraction, directors talked their cast through every move and emotion, and from this confusion came great films
