Jim! Jim! Where is my baby?
I was drunk, Dutch. I didn't know what I was doing. Forgive me, Dutch.

Chatterton shines in a hopelessly plotted melodrama
The narrative does not hold up at all in this early talkie. It's not much of a picture but Chatterton with a false accent gives it all the power and emotion she can muster - she earned the second of her two Oscar noms for this performance - and remains the only reason today for seeing the film. I saw it thirty years ago at a private screening - a 16 mm privately owned print. I have not seen it revived or on video anywhere since.
