~The Taxi Dancer~
1927
~291-5: Joan Crawford~
~Plot Synopsis~
Impoverished Southern belle Joslyn Poe (Joan Crawford) heads to New York, hoping to become a
professional dancer. Unable to land work on Broadway, she becomes a taxi dancer in a cheap dive, where
her cardsharp boyfriend Lee Rogers (Owen Moore) whiles away his time fleecing the suckers. Hoping to
escape her tawdry surroundings, Joslyn latches on to supposed gentleman James Kelvin (Douglas
Gilmore). But when Kelvin turns out to be a thief and a murderer, Joslyn returns to the arms of Rogers,
who isn't such a bad guy after all. Publicity stills from The Taxi Dancer show Joan Crawford dancing atop
a taxicab -- but alas, no such scene appears in the film.
