Steve D Sweet and strongly acted. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Audience Member Worth a remake. General plot is worth it, most characters are interesting though the "daughter" is clearly a Shirley Temple wannabe. Would enjoy seeing it remade. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A potboiling soap opera with Kay Francis decked out in all the most exaggerated finery of the day. Emotions abound throughout as logic and reason are cast to the wind. This is what they were aiming toward and what the audience wanted. They expected Kay Francis to suffer and emote and play on the heartstrings of some innocent man. Her actions in this film are so illogical that they can only be seen as the conveyance to situations where Francis can suffer and emote more. They pulled it off fairly well. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Super melodramatic sudser with Kay suffering and suffering and suffering and the audience suspending disbelief. If you can do that you'll enjoy this exercise in excess. Kay is as usual dressed in high fashion throughout. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member good mystery & Kay Francis vehicle funny thing though I didn't even know she was missing!
