A Little Pre-Code Skin Washed With Some Heavy Soap
7 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some Heavy Going Weigh this one Down as an Early Courtroom Talkie. There is a Pre-Code Subject (out of wedlock babies) and some Cabaret Skin at the Opening, but the Film Struggles to Maintain Interest and much of it is Stiff and Sulan.

Most of the Intrigue takes place Off Screen, like the Murder and the Fatherly Figure's Sexual Advances and Things are Restrained to Cross Examinations. There is a Late Revelation that Dominates the Third-Act that is not much of a Surprise Considering.

Could be an OK Time-Waster for those Interested in Early Sound Hollywood. The Jazzy Sequined Dance Numbers at the Beginning are Unfortunately the Movie's Only Highlight.
