Uncivilized Bingo, who hits anyone she disagrees with, shoots Andy in the arm. Now it's okay for him to marry her. Written by

Untamed is a dusty old creaker that has the distinction of being Joan Crawford's first talkie after years of mostly forgettable silent films. The plot is about an oil heiress named Bingo (Crawford) raised in the jungle by her father. She's pretty much a wild child though nothing like Tarzan. More like a hillbilly or something I guess. She's uncouth, as the kids might say. Anyway her father is killed and his two friends (Holmes Herbert and an overacting Ernest Torrence) decide to take her to New York to become civilized. On the ship she meets Robert Montgomery and falls in love. Being this is Joan's first talking picture, I'll cut her some slack. Her acting in the dramatic scenes was pretty bad but she does better with the comedy. Overall, a curio but nothing more. If you're a die-hard fan of Joan's, check it out. Otherwise you're not missing anything.
