I have been interested in Marion Davies ever since my first visit to "The Ranch", Wm Randolph Hearst's estate in San Simeon, now a California state park.
Charlie Chaplin considered Marion to be one of the best female comedians (the IMDb spell checker can't find the female equivalent) - the tragedy as I have heard is that Hearst kept pushing her to do dramatic roles. This was one such movie - and I understand her first "talkie" (besides one of the world's first) - there are some scenes of her in a comedy role but I have to say the movie was so boring to me I hit fast forward (it is not in the theaters anymore ;-) ) - just to get to the end.
Of the Marion Davies movies I have seen, so far "Show People" is my favorite - in it you can tell she has a self-deprecating sense of humor about herself and "show people" (particularly if they have met success)
Anyway I think my giving this a "5" was generous - it seem to just wander and wander without a destination until the end.
