A pleasant morality tale
11 March 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Marion Davies is a Quaker girl raised strictly by her two aunts. She goes to a fancy resort with childhood friend Hallam Cooley and his mother. Though she has a longstanding crush on him, he does not reciprocate, instead he is interested in a well dressed golddigger. To get his interest, Marion Davies allows rich and bored artist Forrest Stanley to dress her up and stars in his charade play, but when he does become interested, she realizes that he is only interested in the surface and goes for the artist instead.

Most interesting for the doll charade scene, where Marion Davies gets to act. The women's costumes are in the best Hollywood tradition.
