The Dancin' Fool is a surviving 1920 American silent romantic comedy film produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Paramount Pictures. Sam Wood directed this one of his earliest efforts. Wallace Reid and Bebe Daniels star, at the time Paramount was making them a popular team in replacement of Reid's previous female lead Ann Little. A copy of this film survives in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
As described in a film publication, Sylvester Tibble (Reid), a country yokel, comes to New York City to work at his uncle Enoch Jones's (Hatton) jug business for $6 per week and earns extra money dancing at a jazz cabaret. He becomes the dance partner of Junie Budd (Daniels). They soon find romance while performing Apache dance routines. Sylvester also makes a success of his uncle's business by introducing modern business methods.
