pity...
29 September 2011 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

real pity

this movie could have been rather good. they had Kay Francis and Brian Aherne, even Nils Asther..

10 minutes into the movie its painfully obvious that this has something of a Helen Keller Musical.

there's no direction, the plot is dull and stupid and the actors don't seem to have been given a script before shooting.

they should have simply made a romance with Kay and Nils in the leads.. that i would have liked to see.

this movie is an infuriating waste of talent, time and money
