Kiki loses it's kick slowly.
5 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

This Clarence Brown comedy featuring Norma Talmadge and Ronald Colman starts fast but is unable to maintain it's dizzying pace Into the final reels as the title character's zany ways become tiresome, the situation fatigued. Piaf like waif Kiki pushes newspapers on the streets of Paris and has dreams of becoming a stage sensation. By way of a fortuitous mix up she gets an audition and the attention of producer Walter Renal (Colman) who is being two timed by a diva. Kiki works her way into the chorus, creates a calamity on stage and becomes a sensation much to the consternation of Renal's headliner squeeze. Talmadge ( A Woman of Paris ) whose career tanked with sound was a fine silent dramatic actress and in Kiki she displays the same aptitude for comedy with some hilarious mugging. Colman without benefit of his mellifluous voice still conveys suave sophistication and at times a surprising frustrated stridency seldom seen in his sound work. Brown and cameraman give Kiki a good look but he and Talamdge ultimately are unable to sustain the lack of Kiki's character depth seventy minutes in and the last half hour grinds slowly and unimaginatively.
