Synopsis

Son of Ingagi
This horror movie, featuring an all African-American cast, tells the story of a lonesome ape-man who steals a human bride and takes her to his lab. The film's title references the 1930 "documentary" Ingagi, which chronicled the bizarre actions of a wild "gorilla" with a penchant for topless women. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Girl in Room 20
This all-black film was specifically designed for what were once known as "colored" theatres. The title character, played by Geraldine Brock, is a country girl who journeys to New York. Her presence attracts every con man and hustler in the Big Apple. After being victimized and exploited by a number of disreputable types, Brock finally wises up-but not soon enough for a peaches 'n' cream happy ending. Yes, the director of Girl in Room 20 is the same Spencer Williams Jr. who played Andy Brown on the early-1950s TV series Amos 'N' Andy; and no, supporting actress Shirley Jones is not that Shirley Jones. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Girl From Chicago
The plot to this underworld drama, based on a story by Arthur Somers Roche, sounds more like something from the 1930s than from the silent era. It's an early starring vehicle for Myrna Loy. Southern girl Mary Carlton (Loy) finds out that her brother, Bob (Carroll Nye), is going to the electric chair for a crime he says he didn't commit. In order to get her brother exonerated, Mary travels to New York and pretends to be a Chicago gun moll. She wins the love of two gangsters, Handsome Joe (Conrad Nagel) and Big Steve Drummond (William Russell). Joe, it turns out, isn't a gangster at all, but an undercover detective. He attempts to help Mary prove her brother's innocence, and the two of them are caught in a fierce gun battle between the crooks and the cops. They make it through alive (although Drummond gets his due), and Bob is released at the last minute. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi

Lying Lips
Nancy Abbott (Florence Vidor) and her mother (Margaret Campbell) are British ladies of high society. She falls in love with the Canadian rancher Blair (House Peters), but when the family fortunes are reversed, she agrees to marry the wealthy Joseph Kilgour (William Chase) at her mother's request. Blair books passage for her to return to England and takes a third-class ticket to see her home. The ship sinks and the two are stranded on a remote island. They exchange vows with each other, but Nancy refuses to honor the commitment when a rescue ship arrives. At her marriage to Joseph, she faints during the ceremony. Nancy wakes up to realize her true love all along is the rancher Blair in this romantic drama. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
