Why Be Good? is a showcase for Colleen Moore, one of the brightest stars of the silent era. Here she plays a free-spirited flapper who finds herself romantically involved with the son of her boss, much to the displeasure of her new beau’s family. The film was thought to be lost, but two film historians finally (and heroically) tracked down a print in Italy, the original Vitaphone disc soundtrack in the US, and married the two for the first time since the film’s original release! (90 mins., DCP)
Restored by Warner Bros. at L’Immagine Ritrovata, Bologna, and released by Warner Bros.
