The "dumb Dora" of the family, Marion develops personality, grabs Cupid by the forelock, and how she gets her man, makes one of the most hilarious pictures this year. (Print ad-Amherstburg Echo, ((Amherstburg, PO)) 4 May 1928) See more »
This was actually Marie Dressler's turnaround film. After having quite a slump in her career, Dressler was apparently having her last meal at a restaurant before killing herself when Allan Dwan, who was sitting at a nearby table, ended up offering her the role for King Vidor that night. The movie was a success, and Dressler's career skyrocketed again. See more »
If any has ever doubted that Marion Davies couldn't act or hold her own against the biggest names of the time need go no further than this film. Her talent along with the always wonderful Marie Dressler made a good film a great film!
Her crowning moment is her dead on impressions. Especially her Lillian Gish. Her comic timing along with her beauty is a win win situation.
A must see for Marion Davies fans.
