Mary Pickford did not win the 1930 Academy Award for this film for no reason. Contrary to the previous comment this film is wonderfully portrayed by the actress who, with no previous knowledge of how old she was to weigh me down, seemed wonderful as 'Norma.' Although not directly pertinent now, the issues dealt with in this film are issues that people at the present time would still understand and should- without a doubt- understand after watching the film. The previous commenter must not understand human nature if she/he could not comprehend the beauty in this film. This film made me realize that too many films now focus on materialism instead of love and compassion.
