There is nothing unpredictable in this hard-luck-story-programmer - But it is a great chance to see the talents of early screen talents Mae Clarke and Marie Prevost. Marie of the notorious, tragic, early death - It is not true that she had trouble with sound films because of a heavy regional accent: In fact she made a nice transition out of her dynamic silent screen persona into a sidekick with a heart a gold precursor to Joan Blondell - and though not an actress of depth, she has an appealing quality that is evident here. And then there's Mae - she is very easy to underestimate - but taking her performances in context of the times, she is in fact wonderful to watch - with a subtlety and directness that is well ahead of her time. A performer of excellent taste - here's a nice chance to see that talent on good display, albeit in a second rate vehicle.
