"High Stakes" is Mae Murray's final starring performance, an early talkie. The film has little to offer today's viewer,light comic fluff distinguished only by the fine performance of the under-rated actor Lowell Sherman. Mae, for the first time in her lengthy career as a screen beauty, is finally beginning to show her age. The print available for my viewing was poor indeed. Recommended for die-hard Murray, Sherman fans and scholars of early talkies.
