Sharp Shooters is a 1928 American silent comedy film directed by John G. Blystone and starring George O'Brien, Lois Moran, and Noah Young.[1] A print survives in the UCLA Film and Television Archive.[2] Sharp Shooters contains uncredited performances by Boris Karloff and Randolph Scott in his first film appearance.


George (George O'Brien) is a sailor and smooth-talking lady's man who believes in the adage "love 'em and leave 'em" when it comes to women. While on leave in Morocco, George meets Lorette (Lois Moran), a fiery French dancing girl who falls madly in love with him, unaware that he has a girl in every port. Initially thinking of her as just another diversion, George soon discovers that he can't get rid of the girl. Later, she follows him to the United States, but does his best to avoid her. Amused by George's predicament and feeling sorry for the girl, his two best friends, Tom (Noah Young) and Jerry (Tom Dugan), shanghai him aboard a vessel and arrange things so that George is unable to avoid Lorette. As a result, the hero surrenders to the inevitable and marries the girl.
