The Cradle Snatchers
Live music by Donald Sosin
Dir. Howard Hawks. 1927, 59 mins., 35mm print from The Library of Congress. With Louise Fazenda, J. Farrell MacDonald, Ethel Wales. Tired of their husbands’ philandering, three wives decide to seek revenge by hiring three college boys to pose as their ‘young lovers.’ The boys do their job so well that, for a while, it looks like everybody’s going to end up in divorce court. Fortunately, however, the wandering husbands see the error of their ways and return to their spouses in this energetic adaptation of a popular Broadway farce.
