Trivia

This was the final film directed by Donald Crisp. Although he was a prolific director of silent films, this was the only sound film that he ever directed. From this point onwards, he worked exclusively as an actor until his retirement after the filming of Spencer's Mountain (1963). See more »

Not as good as Juia Roberts of same title but worth watching
3 May 2006 | by (san jose , calif) – See all my reviews

Old films are always worth watching, if you want to be a student of films. It has a young Mary Astor, very beautiful indeed. Donald Crisp is the director. He was a much better actor. The performances are very wooden and stiff which is typical for early talkies. They were still learning how to say dialog. The emotions are overdone physically, because most of the actors came from the silent era where facial expressions and gestures had to replace dialog. Watch Mary Astor in one of her later silents and watch her early talkies. But watching these old films gives us a window into the past that we cannot get any other way.
