The Shady Lady is a 1928 American drama film directed by Edward H. Griffith and starring Phyllis Haver, Robert Armstrong and Louis Wolheim.[1] It was made as a part-talkie during the transition from silent to sound film.


An innocent woman is unjustly mixed-up in a murder case in New York and flees to Havana where she is widely known as the "Shady Lady". In Cuba she becomes mixed up with a gang of gunrunners.


Critical reception

A review in Harrison's Reports said that the film was a good story, keeping the viewer's interest throughout, with "pretty tense suspense" in its second half.[2] It added, "The manner by which the different threads of the story are interwoven in the closing scenes is intelligent, and satisfies the discriminating spectator."[2] The review praised Haver, Armstrong, and Wolheim for their work.[2]
