Starring George K. Arthur, Gertrude Olmsted and Joan Crawford
August, 1926

"The Boob" has its interesting moments, thanks to the sincerity of George K. Arthur, his enthusiasm and his comedy flare.

Joan Crawford and Gertrude Olmsted contribute their bit and so does Charlie Murray.

The direction might have been improved upon. Mr. Wellman has subtle touches but at times he lets his players get away from him.

The story centers around a youth called Peter, who, after he is rejected by the girl of his heart, goes out into he world to prove to her that the spirit of knighthood is not dead. The obstacles he encounters form the basis for much comedy and pathos.

The continuity is bad and the cutter should have shortened certain scenes.
