Feel My Pulse ★★★½

Bebe Daniels has been raised to believe that she is sickly and requires constant rest and medication. She travels to her family’s sanitarium expecting rest and quiet. She does not know that the sanitarium has become a hide-out for a gang of rum-runners, led by William Powell.
Rest and quiet turn into pandomonium when the naive Daniels attempts to dose the bootleggers, believing they are patients, and asks “Doctor” Powell to examine her. The excitement reaches it apex when a rival bootlegging gang attacks.

A fast moving and funny silent comedy stars cute Bebe Daniels. By 1928, Daniels was an experienced commedienne. She made her first appearance in 1910, age nine, as Dorothy Gale in an early version of The Wizard of Oz. Daniels was Harold Lloyd’s leading lady for several years in the late 1910s, and by the mid-twenties she was starring in her own comedies, with titles such as Miss Bluebeard (1925), Miss Brewster’s Millions (1926), She’s a Sheik (1927) and Swim, Girl, Swim (1927). These titles give an idea of the jollity intended in these films, of which Feel My Pulse is probably a representative sample.
