Trivia

At approx. 01:05:00, the Empire State building and it's observation deck are shown briefly in what may be the iconic world landmarks' earliest depiction in any motion picture. link=tt0024216 is often credited as the first but link=tt0022737 came out a year earlier. As it was filmed in 1931, this means the building was barely completed during filming. See more »

Brilliant performance by Clara Bow
20 April 2001 | by melancholysugarcaneSee all my reviews

Being a long-time fan of Clara Bow's, I have seen most of her surviving films. By far, this is Clara's best "talkie" performance. She has complete control on her emotions and her character which complete the story-line perfectly. Clara is able to show her amazing range of emotions in this movie and one cannot help but be greatly moved by her performance. All-in-all, a stunning and heart-stirring film--a must for anyone interested in Clara Bow.
