With Beery, O'Brien and Maine, who needs a plot?
13 December 2001 | by (Troy, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Sure, this is just another horse opera, but who cares?

Wallace Beery is more entertaining just being Wallace Beery than most actors are with sparkling dialogue and auteur direction.

Magararet O'Brien: Shirley Temple she ain't! When people talk about child stars, they usually mention Jackie Coogan and Jackie Cooper; Mickey Rooney and Dickie Moore; Baby Peggy and Hailie Mills. Give me Margaret O'Brien any day.

Marjorie Main could lick her weight in Marie Dresslers, any day.

Pure entertainment!
