All of the major players in this movie have been much better served. Zasu Pitts has a throwaway role, Victor Varconi --- well, I must admit I can't think of anything else I might have seen Mr. Varconi in, but his role as husband is the sort that Tommy Meighan made a career playing, and he has almost no presence. Raymond Griffith isn't given much leeway, although he does a couple of amusing takes, and as for the star, Miss Leatrice Joy.... well, she does get to play two roles, but one is a selfish boor who wants to become a Great Actress and the other is a little mouse who doesn't want anything.
Really, it's largely an exercise in posing to another typical Cecil B. DeMille script in which the times, we are informed, they are a-changing. The actors do as much as they can, which renders this pleasantly watchable, but nothing to go out of your way for.
