For an MGM Movie this one looks Rather Unkempt and Ugly. The Sets are no Great Shakes and even the Outdoor Scenes seem Claustrophobic. John Gilbert in His First Talkie does OK with a Mundane Character and the rest of the Cast seems Hardly Inspired as if They Knew this was a Clunker.
There are a Couple of Neat Scenes. A Fist Fight and a Peace Dinner that are Shot with some Panache but most of the Movie is Dull and some of the Scenes are Stilted and have some Heavy Handed Pauses and Awkward Dialog. Not much to Recommend here, even as a Pre-Coder because Truth be Told not much Happens and what does is so Mishandled that it Almost seems Deliberate and some Sources Say that was the Case. A Curiosity at Best.
