Humming Bird Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Glamorous Gloria Swanson dressed down for this story of a little Parisian thief. Toinette (Swanson) is the leader of a band of thieves called "the Wolves of Montmartre." Dressed like a boy, she is known only as the Humming Bird and is wanted by the police. American reporter Randall Carey (Edward Burns) is determined to help the police identify Humming Bird. At an underworld den he come to Toinette's defense and when he is injured she nurses him back to heath. The two fall in love, but then the World War breaks out. Carey enlists and Toinette patriotically convinces her Wolves to enlist. She also decides to hand over her loot to the church. She is caught while doing this, however, and imprisoned. Carey is wounded in battle and a bomb frees Toinette from the prison. She goes to Carey, and they are found by the police chief. Toinette confesses that she is the notorious Humming Bird, fully expecting to be arrested. However, she has been pardoned for inspiring the Wolves of Montmartre to fight in the war. This leaves her and Carey free to be together. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
