Cool!
5 April 2003 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

Any film that contains:

1. Clara Bow and Thelma Todd in a catfight

2. Clara Bow in a tight silk shirt where it's obvious that (A) she's not wearing a bra and (B) the set was cold that morning is an instant classic, no matter how meandering the rest of the film is.

Also, after seeing the film, I'm at a loss as to why Clara Bow didn't succeed in talkies. She's a wonderful actress, even when the material veers back and forth between sub-par and bizarre.
