Interesting melodrama
30 March 2003 | by (United states) – See all my reviews

I admit this is a slow movie but it is extremly interesting to people that enjoy Gloria Swanson movies. It's interesting to see her "Pre-DeMille" and see her acting techinigue varies little from her latter work. i.e. Queen Kelly, Affaiirs of Anatol, Sunset Blvd. Also, it's intersting to note that people enjoyed Gloria Swansons appeal in this movie it's innnocence . Sort of Mary pickford-ish without the little girl get ups that rocketed her contempory to fame. Admittedly I agree with other reviewers, this is a film for die hard Swanson fans.
