Creaky Melodrama
4 January 2004 | by (Glendale, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a very preachy, stodgy melodrama about fast-living Frank Albertson who falls in with the titled "wild company" to the shame of his politician father, H.B. Warner. The cast is good but the movie is very talky in that early 30's style of people coming into a room, standing there and having long conversations. At the end a judge makes a long, long, long speech about responsibility that will make everyone yawn. But the acting is all fine and Bela Lugosi is a stand-out in his small role as a doomed nightclub owner.
