An exhilarating early Joan Crawford movie!
3 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joan Crawford is modern, funny, loose and just plain terrific. She plays comedy with great finesse and there are many funny moments. A pre-code film with lots of low costumes and suggestive language. Johnny Mack Brown gives a rather stodgy, wooden performance as Joan's cowboy love. Ricardo Cortez plays the suave charmer aiming to reclaim his love. This 1929 film is well photographed with use of train miniatures and real people, with on location shots mixed with a few painted backdrops. But it's 1929...the depression and this movie is still an audience pleaser. Joan dances and sings...and really not bad at all. WORTH A LOOK!
