Is it the parents of today who are the problems, instead of the younger generation? An unusual and interesting picture of elders with youthful ideas, and what happens when young blood takes a hand.(Print Ad- The Meriden Daily Journal,((Meriden, Conn.)) 21 March 1930) See more »
The movie has a somewhat overheated, strained quality to it, much like a soap opera and is primarily of interest for Norma Shearer's performance, which received a nomination for Best Actress for the 1929-30 Academy Awards, which she lost to herself, winning instead for her performance in The Divorcee, a better role in a much better film. Ms. Shearer was THE actress at the time and did quite well for many years. A good movie that could have been better and largely a curio now.
