Nice, but not memorable
23 February 1999 | by jan onderwaterSee all my reviews

The picture starts promising, but the very simple, only occasionally funny story is too streched out to remain interesting. Goldin directs well enough, but very conventional. The continuity of the editing shows some problems, which already in 1923 should not have happen. Big yiddish star Molly Picon has some funny scenes. All in all: nice, but not memorable.

The restored copy (Austrian Film Archive) I saw, runs 100 minutes.
