Early Joan Crawford Talkie
2 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Crawford's second starring role in a talkie is a mix of her willful character from OUR DANCING DAUGHTERS but set on a Montana ranch with singing cowboys.

To escape lecherous Ricardo Cortez, Crawford bails off a train in Montana and meets up with Johnny Mack Brown. They instantly fall in love and get married. But it turns out the ranch he works for is owned by her father. Worse, Crawford's whole "crew" of young friends is at the ranch for an extended weekend party. Will Cortez win Crawford? Will Brown mix with the society friends? Typical plot for the era but with dialog and songs. The acting isn't great but both Brown and Crawford are very likable here, early in their long movie careers. Cortez is OK. Dorothy Sebastian is the sister in love with Cortez. And MGM regulars Karl Dane, Cliff Edwards, and Benny Rubin play cowboys.

Crawford and Edwards sings a few songs, including "The Moon Is Low."
