... because it is lost like so many other Vitaphone films where the soundtrack on disc has often survived but the nitrate film has not. How the other reviewer could know about the "directing, editing, production design and camera work" when this film has likely been dust for years is beyond me. The broad outline of the film the other reviewer has correct - Winnie Lightner plays a torch singer in love with a gangster played by Chester Morris who ultimately dumps her for Sally Eiler's high society character. This can be found by reading a page in Richard Barrios' excellent book "Song in the Dark", which is all about the early film musicals made from 1926-1934. The film made money, had mixed reviews, and allowed Winnie Lightner her only chance at a really dramatic role. The rest of the films she made from this point forward were comedies, some musical, some not.

The nitrate elements for this film are lost, and I'm not sure about the soundtrack, but it is likely it may be gone too. The reason I say this is that archive.org has the soundtracks for many Vitaphone films, but "She Couldn't Say No" is not among them.
