Two friends - one a Coney Island gambler - vie for girls affection.
14 April 2008 | by Ziggy5446See all my reviews

Just Another Blonde directed by Alfred Santell is a love story and drama, with aerial scenes, about two small-time gamblers and the two Coney Island girls they romance. The film was also released and reviewed (especially in and around New York City) under the title, The Girl from Coney Island. The film stars Dorothy Mackaill as the title character. She plays Jeanne Cavanaugh, one of the more popular hostesses at a Luna Park dance emporium. Unfortunately this film exists in fragmentary form, and reportedly, all of the scenes which include Louise Brooks (in a thankless roll) still exist.

THE PLOT SYNOPSIS:

"Jimmy O'Connor, employed in a gambling establishment, is so honest that he is offered a banking job at any time; and for his sake, Scotty, his protégé and pal, decides to go straight. The boys go fifty-fifty in everything until SCotty falls in love with Diana, who operates a shooting booth at Coney Island. Jimmy declares that he disapproves of all women- except his mother - and Scotty despairs until he schemes to have Jimmy meet Jeanne, Diana's girl friend. It is only when they expect to be killed in an airplane crash that Jimmy tells Jeanne he loves her, but later he feigns indifference. Jeanne is heartbroken; Scotty explains that he can't marry Diana until Jimmy is safely engaged; and with that both boys are reconciled to their respective sweethearts."
