A wonderful slice of early movie history. Talkies still in infancy. Basically a broadway play put on film. There's so much to enjoy and study. The fashion is still 20's flapper, and look at those hips and thighs, amazing. Check out the jokes, they probably were funny back then. A rich 'time machine' tapestry to appreciate. Don't try to compare but view it on its own uniqueness. Corny and wonderful.
