flapper & friend get caught up in their schemes
23 March 2010 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Well, the sound production and lighting sequences are so crappy, I thought for SURE it was one of the first talkies, but no, it was actually made in 1933... although we DO see alcohol being served; they were probably in a speak-easy for those scenes, since prohibition wasn't repealed until the end of 1933. About half the actors listed here in IMDb don't have a matching character name listed, so it must be a seldom-seen, little-known film. The story revolves around "Suzanne" (Made Bellamy) and her friend Tony (Gilbert Roland). She is determined to get back at Balraine,(Theodore von Eltz) who gave her a ring, then dumped her for another, and many others. They bump into another woman, who seems to be Madame Balraine, and she will be used to help them get revenge on Balraine. It's a shortie, at only 64 minutes (61 minutes on the Genius Entertainment DVD collection,. which I got from Turner Classics). Apparently, this was the ONLY film Alphonse Martell wrote & then directed ... he had acted in 240 films prior to this one. The story is OK, the acting is so-so, and the scenes jump ahead here & there, so its probably a case of poor/lost film quality, rather than editing. Interesting history at Wikipedia.org explaining how theater/distributor Majestic Pictures was later merged into Republic Pictures. Not a bad rental, but I wouldn't miss the the ball game for this one. More of a study of the history of the times than anything else.
