Steve D The pace isn't great but it has a strong story and good acting. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Louisa E The acting of William Powell and Kay Francis was excellent. There were some good characters, but it almost felt like too many (sometimes I couldn't work out who people were and why they were in the story). The costumes were good. While the movie kept my interest, the story felt a bit lacklustre. The sound and editing weren't great either. But it was still a fun movie. 6.7/10. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/08/23 Full Review Audience Member william powell and kay francis are two of my favs Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
