Another good film performance by that GREAT actor, Charles Bickford, and also by Mady Christians. In fact, it is the performance of Miss Christians that this film hinges on, as without her, it would be a very dull film. It is too bad that Miss Christians never had a chance to become a big star in America as she had been in Europe, as she is a very good actress!! This film has one of the first performances of Robert Taylor and he does a very good job, as does all the supporting players in this film. I enjoyed this film and think you will too, if you get to see it on television.
