A Rare Classic

The great silent film QUEEN KELLY, is Swanson's most popular film, aside from SUNSET BOULEVARD.

Swanson plays Patricia Kelly, a naive and innocent convent girl, who catches the eye of a Prince (Walter Byron), when her underpants accidentally fall down. He falls in love with her, despite the fact that the demented and jealous Queen Regina (Seena Owen), is after the Prince herself.

The scene where Regina chases Kelly out of the palace, whip lashing and her feathered robe flaying, is truly memorable.

One of the most sought-after silents, this great tinted version is backed by a full orchestra soundtrack.
