Bessie Love Is Good
26 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cheapo production from Tiffany boasts a solid cast in story about a small-town girl (Bessie Love) who goes to New York City and sleeps her way into a good job and snazzy apartment. Everything is fine until a hometown boy looks her up with ideas of marriage.

She goes back home and tries to reform but gossip about her starts a fight in a club and her brother injures another man in the brawl. To pay for damages, she heads back to the city and her old lifestyle.

Things come to a head when her parents (Emma Dunn, Edmund Breese) pay a surprise visit on a night when she is giving a boozy party. To top things off, her boss (Conway Tearle) brings along the naive boy friend (John Holland).

As always, Bessie Love is warm and natural and very good in an offbeat role (for her). Dunn is solid as the mother. Natalie Moorhead and Lina Basquette are fun as two catty friends, and Virginia Lee Corbin has a small role as a dumb blonde. June Clyde and David Rollins are less successful as the siblings. The film is also known by an alternate title: BIG CITY INTERLUDE.
