With stellar jazz-age tunes this movie starts on fire and never fades.
It's funny. It's sexy. It challenges the boundaries of the day.
I kept thinking: I was born several decades too late.
Makes me sad Colleen Moore didn't make many movies after this, before retiring in the mid-30s. Also fun to see ''Commissioner Gordon'' in the silent era. Supporting cast is well above average.

Thank heavens for TCM, or we'd never see this great movie.I could watch this movie over and over again.
