Audience Member Cute little early ‘30s romp! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/18 Full Review Audience Member ok pre-code early talkie Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Creaky antique reworking of Madame X is of interest mainly for its pre-code ingredients, blatant lesbianism, unpunished sex outside marriage etc., than any real value as a film. A lot of the film techniques are reminiscent of silents showing the growing pains of films continued into the early thirties. Part of the problem with the film is that all the men talk about how the heroine gets under a man's skin and they can't get over her but Helen Twelvetrees exudes none of the magnetism that makes that believable. The supporting players add more to the picture than the leads with Lilyan Tashman having the most fun as a party girl with Joan Blondell and Frank McHugh both starting out but already stealing scenes with their patented personas firmly in place. An almost unrecognizable Anita Louise, still beautiful but so young, is cast as Millie's daughter. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
