TRAMP, TRAMP, TRAMP
starring Harry Langdon and Joan Crawford
Despite the fact that the title smacks of the army, "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp" has nothing whatsoever to do with the said organization. Instead it refers to the footfalls of transcontinental hikers exploiting the excellence of Burton shoes.
This is Harry Langdon's first feature length comedy. We, for one, regret having missed all of his two-reel comedies. He has a keen comedy sense and a subtle manner. His strangely peculiar countenance is, in itself, food for laughter.
Langdon essays the role of a tramp who falls into a hiking contest organized by a shoe manufacturer for the purpose of advertising the superiority of his goods. The girl whose face appears on all posters becomes the inspiration of Langdon. This young lady, played by Joan Crawford, proves to be none other than Burton's daughter. Miss Crawford again proves that she is on the road to stardom.
