Crappy Pre-code Movie
19 August 2010 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Gosh, sometimes it's hard to figure out where to begin. I like Edna May Oliver and Louise Fazenda and could appreciate Mitzi Green, of whom I haven't seen a great deal. A previous reviewer mentioned that this is a pre-code movie, but that has no bearing on this picture. And I wasn't thinking of the gender angle, of Mitzi Green acting like a tomboy, as another reviewer mentioned.

I was thinking mainly of the asinine script that these actors had to work with, and the improbable and improvisational nature of the plot, a pail of swill that the screenwriters responsible threw at us. If it's comedy, it's extremely forced and not very funny. If it's anything else, those responsible should have been fired on the spot - except that it was none other than Sinclair Lewis and Joseph Mankiewicz!!

What was the target audience for this mess? Anyone over the age of 10 would be as uninterested as I was. All others must have been looking for a place to get out of the rain (my excuse was that I was a captive audience at a film festival). Edna and Louise did their best but I still am giving it a three, mainly due to their efforts.
