Steve D The script isn't worthy of Astor. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/03/23 Full Review Audience Member a good pre code 1931 forbidden Hollywood early talkie.the acting was good with Mary Aster,James Cagney,Joan Blondel,Regis Toomey and Grant Withers Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Barely watchable ROMCOM Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Love triangle plot starts out strong, then dissolves into melodramatics; fun supporting work from Cagney and Blondell. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member good pre-code early talkie from wellman Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member 2.5: Yet another pre-production code picture, but this one is a serious exploration of a friend stealing another man's wife (i.e. it explores infidelity). Just as was the case with Three on a Match, it is really a quite sophisticated film given the age in which it was made. It is also a rather serious-minded endeavor. Worth seeing and not just for historical reasons, but also because it is a quality film, if a bit melodramatic. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
