With stellar jazz-age tunes this movie starts on fire and never fades.
It's funny. It's sexy. It challenges the boundaries of the day.
I kept thinking: I was born several decades too late.
Makes me sad Colleen Moore didn't make many movies after this, before retiring in the mid-30s. Also fun to see ''Commissioner Gordon'' in the silent era. Supporting cast is well above average. And maybe most surprising of all it's all so natural. None of that ham- boned silent-era acting. It's almost as if the actors were delivering their lines in a talkie.
Thank heavens for TCM, or we'd never see this great movie.I could watch this movie over and over again.
