Lovely night, huh?
Lovely night for what? Air raids? Those fellows up there give me the willies.
Well, they're men, aren't they? I'd rather they throw bombs on me, than take no notice of me at all.
I expect they do that just to please you, dearie.

Having seen Mae Clarke being carried away by Frankenstein and getting a grapefruit in the face by James Cagney, I had a clear image of her but not of her talent.
I agree with the other reviewers that this is one knock-out performance. At a time when many actors in early talkies were still being very stagey (with stilted manners and playing to the back row), Mae Clarke built a performance that was modern and genuine.
The whole production is good (especially Arthur Edeson's cinematography and James Whale's direction), but Clarke's acting is what I'll always remember.
