Absolute Rubbish
14 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pepper (Clara Bow) falls in love with railroad engineer Jerry (Stanley Smith) who is really a millionaire in disguise. His family don't approve of her but they go ahead with a party for her where she shocks all the guests. Does love win out in the end....?...

With the exception of Clara Bow (when she is not singing!), the whole cast is annoying with a special mention going to the characters of Clicker (Stuart Erwin) who plays a very slow speaking retard who is in love with Pepper: and Pepper's young sister Penny (Mitzi Green) who is precocious and obnoxious beyond belief! The film is crashingly dull with terrible songs. Its not funny at any point despite the film being played for comedy. You will either fall asleep, switch it off or if you sit through it, you will be praying for it to finish and looking at the clock every 3 minutes.

Truly awful.
