Indiscreet was directed by legendary Leo McCarey and starred superstar Gloria Swanson as a woman who hides her past only to find her ex-boyfriend has taken up with her sister. Dumb plot but played for laughs. Swanson was a marvelous light actress and she looks great here. She sings well and, in only her 3rd talkie, has mastered the new medium. Swanson had a great voice and you hear it here--all the inflections and phrasing-- 20 years before her masterpiece, Sunset Boulevard. What a talent. Too bad after The Trespasser in 1929 her films did not do well at the box office. Ben Lyon is the handsome leading man. Monroe Owsley is the creepy boyfriend. Maude Eburne is funny at the aunt. Arthur Lake, Barbara Kent, Nella Walker and Henry Kolker co-star.
