Trivia

Original release prints had some very careful hand-coloring, added by artist Gustav Brock to each frame. These accents included adding red and blue to an American flag, and adding a slight blush to Marion Davies's cheeks during a scene in which her character overhears a risqué story. No surviving prints feature Brock's work. See more »

Charming
21 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Another charming and enjoyable Marion Davies film. She plays Patricia/Patrick O'Day from Ireland. Davies is excellent and plays the role with the humor and self awareness that the role calls for considering the material she had to work with.

Harrison Ford also does a good job playing against his feelings towards the character of Davies/Pat O'Day. What makes this film interesting is how they play on the border of same sex love.

It's very well made and directed. Hearst never went half way on any picture of hers and this is no exception.
