I'm sorry, but other than saying farewell to the very wonderful Vilma Banky, this is an awful movie. Edward G. Robinson's attempt at an Italian accent is appalling. Since when have Italians had problems with "V"? But this doesn't stop Edward G. from pronouncing "Valley" as "Walley" Well Wally to this Wally.
Did anyone notice the large photo of Il Duce in the lounge. Benito hated the way Hollywood portrayed Italians and with good reason.
The scene of washing Edward G. with all his pig squeals was nauseating at best.
But full marks to Vilma B, a great lady.
In summary, other than Vilma Banky, this movie was embarrassing to watch.
