Decent follow-up to Our Dancing Daughters
4 September 2000 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Popular follow-up to Our Dancing Daughters. Crawford and Fairbanks (who were married in real life) play an engaged couple who fall for different people. He falls for her best friend (Page) and she falls for diplomat (LaRoque). Was considered a risqué jazz age love quadrangle at the time. Crawford's final silent film.
