| Pushing Leather
Reginald Denny first came to the attention of the movies in the 'Leather Pushers' series of shorts about a young boxer and his associates and this story of a young boxer who is comically corrupted by New York night life and a young woman down on her luck is handled in a very amusing and telling manner by director Fred Newmeyer. Newmeyer had been a director on the Roach lot, part of Harold Lloyd's crew and knew how to direct a silent comedy with a real story at its heart.

With the coming of sound, Denny would be revealed not as an American, but someone with a good English accent, and he would specialize for the rest of his career in upper-class twits, in roles like 'Algie' in the Bulldog Dummonds series. His career would extend into the 1960s, with a lovely turn in CAT BALLOU. But he is particularly good as the lead in this movie and you should not miss a chance to see it.
