Title Has It Backwards
20 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Actually, I thought the movie was the opposite of the title - this film "rose" high at the start and just slowly fell to the bottom.

It started off great, especially in the cinematography department. Greta Garbo looked very pretty and captivating and there was Clark Gable, sans famous mustache. This was Gable's first starring role.

The start of the second half signaled the decline as the film turned into a sappy melodrama and finished with an incredibly bad last 15 minutes, ruining what looked like a really promising film. Jean Hersholt and John Miljan provided able supporting help but, in the end, the film was disappointment.
