Although included among the more than 700 features in the original 1956 MGM television package, this one's age and obscurity destined it for only a handful of presentations, in less predominant markets, among them Wednesday 22 June 1960 on KYW (Channel 3) in Cleveland, Ohio, and Sunday 24 July 1960 on KPHO (Channel 5) in Phoenix, Arizona. Today's vintage film enthusiasts have it much better, with an occasional welcome showing on Turner Classic Movies, and its original finale now restored in 2-strip Technicolor. See more »
In the beach scene, which begins Reel #3 @ 0:18:40, the opening shot begins with the clapper boy crossing the set with clapper in hand, obviously a modern day printing error in the version presently in circulation which 1930 audiences would not have witnessed. See more »
I've never seen a Marion Davies movie before.
I had heard of her of course. Shacking up with that creep Hearst is skin crawling. She went for the money I guess.
But that aside, she was an excellent comedian actress.
I was completely surprised when watching this film that Davies totally takes over your attention. Everyone in this film is a good actor but she lights up the screen in every scene she's in.
Her timing is flawless and her performance seems effortless.
I had read that at social gatherings she was the life of the party and that Hearst couldn't take his eyes off of her.
This movie kind of illustrates that.
I like to pick out the flaws of actors and movies because Hollywood is so self absorbed.
But Davies was something else in this film.
