GETTING GERTIE'S GARTER
starring Marie Prevost and Charles Ray
Before they started making this picture, somebody should have remembered garters are not what they used to be. In 1927, it is rather difficult to believe any girl would be terrorized over the fact she had been twice engaged and had once accepted a jeweled garter from an ex-fiancee. That's the whole plot here. Marie Prevost, pounds beyond the pleasingly plump stage, plays Gertie. Charles Ray is too sterling an actor to waste on the stupid hero.
