When it was originally released in April 1930, Strictly Unconventional ran 72 minutes, but, by the time it found its way to New York City in July 1930, (for a one day showing on a double bill at Loew's), MGM had cut it to 54 minutes, and this is the version which survives today on Turner Classic Movies.

I had never heard of Catherine Dale Owen before,which is hardly surprising given that she only appeared in about 6 films.However after this performance i do not think that i will ever forget her.She seems to enunciate every word to twice its natural length.I think that she must have gone to the vocal coach featured in "Singing In The Rain".There is one scene where she is seated having a discussion.Every time the other actor talks she looks away with a doleful stare.When it comes to her lines she turns and almost stares into the camera as if reading an idiot board.Then when she speaks her lines she seems to want to make a different hand gesture for every word.The tone of her voice hardly altering.So to Catherine i retrospectively award the Razzie for the worst actress of 1930.A well merited award!
