Margerie Lowry in the movies Part 6

I continue my look at Margerie Lowry in the movies.

King of Kings 1927

Margerie had an undetermined/uncredited part in the film.

The King of Kings (1927) is a silent film directed by Cecil B. DeMille. It is a religious movie about the last weeks of Jesus before his crucifixion. H. B. Warner starred as Jesus. One of the last sequences of the movie, the Resurrection, is in Technicolor. Read more on Wikipedia

You can watch the movie on You Tube:

Poor Girls 1927

A Vivid Drama of the Night Clubs of New York IMDb

Director: William James Craft; Writers: Sophie Bogen (story), William Branch; Stars: Dorothy Revier (seen below), Edmund Burns and Ruth Stonehouse. Margerie played Vivian Stewart in the film.

The "poor girls" in this big-city melodrama are actually one in number: heroine Dorothy Revier, who has been raised to believe that she was born into a wealthy and well-connected family. Upon learning that her sainted mother is a "mere" nightclub hostess, the pampered Revier leaves home in a huff and heads for New York, where she lands a job in a department store. Only after being threatened by various urban pitfalls does Revier come to realize how much she truly owes her mother for sheltering her from such perils. Critics in 1927 complained that Dorothy Revier's character was too unsympathetic to sustain interest for six full reels. Nor were they impressed by leading man Edmund Burns, whom they found stiffer than usual. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Artist Direct

The Four-Footed Ranger 1928

Director: Stuart Paton; Writers: Gardner Bradford (titles), Paul M. Bryan (screenplay), and 2 more credits; Cast: Dynamite the dog, Edmund Cobb [Jack Dunne], Marjorie Bonner [Katy Pearl Lee], Pearl Sindelar [Mary Doolittle], Francis Ford [Brom Hockley], Pat Rooney (Patrick Rooney) [Bull Becker], Frank M. Clark (Frank Clark) [‘Handsome’ Thomas], Carl Sepulveda [Jake], Lee Lin [the Chinese cook. I am unsure whether that is Marg in the above still from the movie.

Assisted by an above-average cast that included veteran Western lead Edmund Cobb (seen above)and rising ingénue Marjorie Bonner, Universal's Rin Tin Tin clone Dynamite headlined this likable silent Western}. Dynamite and Ranger {Cobb} are called in to investigate a series of cattle rustlings. In order to get close to the gang, {Cobb} dons the disguise of ranch hand on the {Lee} ranch. The owner of the ranch, unbeknownst to {Cobb}, is pretty {Marjorie Bonner}, who arrives from the East with a maiden aunt (Pearl Sindelar}) in tow. After numerous romantic and action-packed interludes, the ranger and his dog manage to unmask the leader of the rustlers, ranch foreman {Francis Ford}, and his underling, {Pat Rooney}. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
