ashley h Cynara is a disappointing film. It is about a London barrister's marriage that is under strain after his affair with a shop-girl who is out to have him. Kay Francis and Ronald Colman give horrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. King Vidor did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
