this is a pretty good movie with pretty good acting considering it's a b movie for the most part i new i was going to like it because one of the actors in this always does a fine job of acting and making you believe he is the character he's playing made in 1930 it's one of the early talkies and one of the better jobs of casting for a film just really learning to cast for a movie where there will be talking i can never tell what city the early movies take place in but i think that this one is set in new york though most of this movie takes place inside different homes there's not much outside action so you can get a guage on what city this is but it's still one that i would highly recommend.
