Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Yes, Tallulah Bankhead, she of the mighty-low voice and outrageous private life, did appear in silent films. The British His House in Order was lensed in 1928, at a time when Tallu was knocking 'em dead on the London stage. Ms. Bankhead plays a socialite who falls in love with handsome Ian Hunter. Our Heroine is caught in the middle when Hunter's wealthy father, David Hawthorne, raises Holy Ned upon finding that his son is illegitimate. His House in Order was adapted from a play by Arthur Wing Pinero.
