The original Broadway production of and source for the screen play "Dulcy" by George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly opened at the Frazee Theatre on August 13, 1921 and ran for 241 performances. See more »

Stiffly-done farce in which Davies plays an obnoxious character, and the result is not only obnoxious but almost unbearable. Way before Lucy, this is the wacky dame who puts her foot in her mouth too many times and in endless variations. Kaufmann and Connelly's lines fall flat, and Vidor seems to be a little frightened of the microphone in this early talky. Some of the lesser characters are funny in a Rodney Dangerfield sort of way, and the "other William Holden" is good as a pompous businessman.
