Fast, sexy, hyper articulate and attractive. Relatively simple love story, made extraordinary by powerhouse performance by Norma Shearer, particularly the scene where she confronts her father over his infidelity. Similar to the scene where she confronts her husband in ("I would have forgiven you anything") her Oscar winning performance in "The Divorcée" of that same year. Nominated twice for Oscars third ever outing. I love Robert Montgomery, among "Golden Age of Hollywood's " most frequent leading man to Garbo, Crawford, Shearer et. al. . Lewis Stone is as always great to see. The song (Blue is the Night??) in the middle is sooooo romantic.
