Thank God Mary Pickford made 'Secrets' after this, since this interminable early talkie version of the old David Belasco warhorse would have constituted a truly horrible swansong for America's Sweetheart.

After sabotaging a Busby Berkeley production number as a chorus girl elegantly attired in top hat and tails (until she loses her trousers), the 38 year-old Miss Pickford cavorts about (as Variety's reviewer put it) "in various states of undress" with an almost inaudible French accent in the sort of role that even Clara Bow was then outgrowing.
