Constance Talmadge plays a dual role here; dowdy Helen whose husband, Joseph (Ronald Colman) is bored with her; and showgirl La Perry, who has 'had kings at her feet'. And what a sparkling actress she was.
It's a rollicking saga of mistaken identity and foolish husbands, helped along by the comedy support of George K Arthur as besotted family friend Bob. The performances are all top-notch and even in a damaged print with many signs of deterioration, this film still oozes class and is extremely funny.
Colman, too, shows his star quality and why he transferred seamlessly into the sound era. Here his reactions are priceless and the interplay between him and Talmadge is a joy to watch.
