John Barrymore wonderful
24 September 1998 | by (New York City, New York) – See all my reviews

A kind of forgettable film, but Barrymore is, as usual, wonderful! Helen Chandler is also quite good and very lovely! Does anyone know why her career didn't go further? I definitely think she had what it takes!!!
