Even in one her apparently not so good movies she deposits a number of special moments and some in this movie are totally enjoyable.
The long dance scene is wonderfully choreographed and hilarious, I had to keep watching it over and over.
People often forget that in the earliest talkies actors were hamstrung by the positioning and quality of microphones. It took them a while to work it out and for actors to work out how to free themselves up again.
This is by no means a bad movie. An enjoyable movie with some special moments and also great to see a different Pickford.
Pickford only made one more movie, mostly because external events and pressures were over taking her life. If only Fairbanks could have stayed true to Mary - we may have got a whole bunch of Mary Pickford movies and in a new genre.
