Some Early Sound Eye Candy
4 November 2014 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

Early, Early Talkie that has some very Interesting Moments. The Opening as a Motley Crew of Gangsters encircle a Table as a Matronly Moll, Played by an Imposing and Grim Helen Ware, a Post-Rape, a visually Battered and Brutalized Billie Dove, and an Expressionistic Courtroom Scene that is Stunning.

The Remainder of the Film is Not so Exciting as it Clunks along with Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Stiffly going about His usual Non-Acting Performance. Miss Dove is a Curvaceous Creature and Her Wares are on Display but even Her Beauty can't stop Helen from Stealing the Picture.

Heavily Melodramatic as these Embryonic transitional Movies Tend, it is still Worth a Watch for its Fancy Cinematography and a Powerful Central Figure of a Female Mobster.
