An interesting film, although it's by no means the must-see movie the credits promise. Fred C. Newmeyer directed some of Harold Lloyd's best films (including Safety Last) and Ruth Hall (who was married to Lee Garmes) had an amazing Hollywood career that broke all the rules. She is the only star I know who would habitually work as the star in one movie and then accept an unbilled role as an extra in the next! In this one, of course, she is the star and a super-lovely lady she is too. But not only is she alluringly beautiful, she's an excellent actress to boot and can be rated as thoroughly convincing from first to last. I can't say the same about Grant Withers who is very convincing in some scenes but seems unsure of himself and even a little hesitant in others. John St. Polis, however, makes the most of his scenes as Ruth's dad. The screenplay holds the interest and all told, this is a neat way to spend 60 minutes. Available on a very good Alpha DVD.
