Why Be Good? (1929) Trailer

From original YouTube poster stjn01: "(Not original sound on this clip) Extremely rare trailer from the 1929 First National Pictures release Why Be Good, starring Colleen Moore. This movie was long concidered lost. Recently a nitrate print was found and this movie is now awaiting funding to be restored by the UCLA"

It sure is. If that trailer doesnt make you want to see the film, I dont know what will.

Why be Good? was a First National release, which I believe is part of the Turner Library. Thats good news because the restored film may get an official release, or at least could be shown on TCM. Some studios not under the Turner umbrella, such as Fox and Paramount, show some of their restored films(Fox Movietone Follies of 1930, Paramount on Parade, Follow Thru, Her Wedding Night, Kick In, etc.)only at archives and film festivals.

By the way, I love your new blog banner.

Thanks! Y'know, when you have YouTube clips, I really need to learn to watch the whole thing ;0)
