Magnificent Performance by Louise Dresser
3 July 2008 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Well Kevin Brownlow was right again.... this is an excellent film with a magnificent performance by Louise Dresser as the goose woman, a once-famous opera singer who is forced to retire from public life. She lives on a filthy, and I mean FILTHY, goose farm and is estranged from her son (Jack Pickford) who is in love with a young actress (Constance Bennett). When a murder occurs near the goose farm, Dresser tells the police what she witnessed (but did she?) in order to see her name in the headlines once again. She's not a reliable witness but gets a major makeover and revels in her new fame until the murder case goes wrong.

Dresser is best remembered for playing Catherine the Great in Valentino's THE EAGLE.
