Ann Harding "radiant" in this first film adaptation.
2 July 2002 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

The 1935 RKO release (you can catch it on AMC cable) is adapted from the stage play, not the original novel. It runs a brief 67 minutes and is not in any way as satisfying as the remake of the early nineties, which derives from the novel itself. The only real reason for seeing this early version is the radiant Ann Harding, who plays Lotty with such emotional joy, confidence in goodness and just plain effervescence, that it would be a crime to miss. She was a great star of the early talkies and you can see why here. She is unforgettable - the film sadly is quite forgettable, especially Reginald Denny's ridiculous performance as her friend's husband.
