Timely for 2002
3 October 2002 | by (Madison, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

The last thirty minutes of this film have a fascinating cinematic depiction of the 1929 stock market crash. Check it out.

Edna May Oliver is a gem. The acting style is super theatrical; so much so that it's almost post modern, actors commenting on acting on stage. It would be interesting to remake this picture now with a film within a film screenplay, the actors of that period moving in and out of character.

Take a look with your nostalgic eyeballs in your head and you'll enjoy this old RKO picture.
