John Douglas Cheever:
I was willing you to come to me, and you have. So it's alright, but don't send me away again because I won't go.
Lucia 'Lally' Marlett:
Send you away? Do you think I want to send you away, Jacky?

I've got the little ol' canoe down at the landing; let me run you over to the little ol' love nest.

I watched and enjoyed this old first of the talkies. I it always cool for me to think of what life must have been prior to the depression and all of todays discoveries and new way of life. My mother was born in 1921, so I think of her life then. She would have been eight years old at this time. The cars , the actors, the dress is very nice and wonderfully done. I watch quite a lot of these old movies of this era, most were still silent at this point. This must have been one of the first of the 'talkies'. Just think what it was like to have no TV but to basically go to the movies for all you watched including news reals. It must've been great living in these days.
