A very usual film.
28 March 2014 | by westernoneSee all my reviews

This film only exists in the Czechoslovakian print, and has yet (in 2014)to have it's titles restored to English. The Technicolor sequence, I believe,was a long pan of the palm beach crowds out on a boardwalk, now only in black & white.

Marie Dressler has one short scene as a buyer in Madge Bellamy's hat shop, where she's tricked into buying a quickly constructed chapeau in the belief it is a Parisian original, thanks to a fake label.

The best scene is when the cad that married her reveals himself, and Neil Hamilton, just barely controlling himself from punching out the villain. Though Olive and the settings are very attractive, and the rich-folk automobiles and clothes are impressive, the melodramatic story was pretty stale even then, with little excitement now, and the overall direction tepid.
