Try and see a good print of it
1 May 2004 | by classicflmSee all my reviews

A typical early talkie with microphones hidden in flower pots, though it is above average from most of the productions of that period. This comedy/drama with decent performances by Clive Brook and Evelyn Brent would have been a lot better for this writer if it was not for seeing such a terrible 16mm print transfered onto video with terrible picture and audio. Good supporting cast includes Eugene Pallette and Helen Ware as an rich couple that Paul Lukas and Brent are trying to swindle. Look for a very young and beautiful Virgina Bruce in a very minor role as Pallette's and Ware's daughter. Set design is good and the scenes that take place in a darkened room at the films finale are quite impressive. Like I had mentioned before, hold out for a good print to turn up.
