Ann Harding radiates in first film version of classic comedy.
Although this film is best known for its 1938 remake with Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn, this first talkie version is just as fine an adaptation of the classic comedy, but with the added distinction of the vibrant, natural and completely beguiling performance of Ann Harding as Linda (she earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress). Sadly, the film exists only as an archive print in D.C.'s Library of Congress.
