This almost-forgotten film wraps romance, adventure, comedy and melodrama in one exciting package! Screened at the Fall Cinesation in Saginaw, MI in 2001, You Never Know Women revolves around a romantic triangle involving two members of an acrobatic troupe (Vidor and Brook) and a rakish ne'er-do-well (Sherman). William Wellman keeps the story moving while providing time for comic relief by El Brendel. While Brook is a bit stiff, Vidor is lovely and Sherman is perfect as the top-hatted cad. Particularly exciting is a scene involving a Houdini-like stunt performed by Brook. This film deserves to be on video/DVD!
