Ordinary melodrama given life by the extraordinary Clara Bow!
8 November 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

This little melodrama concerns a mother and her daughter falling for the same man. Mum's been the good little "stay-at-home" while her daughter and husband do the town. But Mum gets her revenge! Alice Joyce is very good as mum, and the ending is quite politically subversive - but it is the wonderful Clara Bow who steals the picture. Her vitality, as a little flapper, is mind-blowing, her beauty unsurpassed, and her gowns magnificent. Worth seeing just for the scene on the couch when Clara lies back laughing amongst the cushions - it'll make your heart race.
