Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Comedy specialist Edward F. Cline was a curious choice to direct the typically two-fisted Milton Sills vehicle The Crash. Sills plays the head guy of a wrecking crew who, while out on the town, is smitten by burlesque dancer Thelma Todd. At first, Sills' intentions toward Todd are strictly dishonorable, but by and by he learns to love her and ultimately asks her to be his wife. The local gossips loudly disapprove of the match, and pretty soon Sills begins to wonder if he's made a mistake, but after a spectacular train-wreck finale (hence the film's title), hero and heroine are reunited.
