This is an extremely enjoyable film despite the print quality. Miss Bennett was worth every penny that the Brother's Warner paid her. It was a little disconcerting to see her so painfully thin but that was part of the 1930's allure. A fine cast, no clinkers at all. Note that Dorothy Peterson was just 7 years old when she supposedly gave birth to CB - only in Hollywood! Miss Peterson was intelligent enough to accept mother roles very early in her career and thus prolonged it far beyond the average tenure of her contemporaries. Thank goodness that films such as this have survived to serve as a counterpoint to what is produced today.
