Enjoyed the great acting of Marion Davies and the many stories about William Randolph Hearst and their great parties in California in the Hearst Castle. In this film Marion Davis plays the role of a French Country girl named, Marianne (Blondy) who also has adopted children to take care of and along comes the GI Joes from WW II to her farm. Marianne is charmed by three American Soldiers and Pvt. Stagg, (Lawrence Gray) tries his best to charm Blondy into a nice warm relationship, but she has nothing to do with him and he never seems to give up. There is plenty of comedy, dancing and singing by Marion Davies which makes this a very entertaining film from the Year 1929, don't miss this film, it is a great classic and well directed and produced.
