Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine It's the usual sort of summer movie, and you don't have to go all the way downtown in the heat to know what happens to everybody in the end. Aug 1, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D Cute because of Davis's committed work. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Audience Member This is the best early example of the Bette Davis that will become Hollywood legend. There were a couple of awesome Bette scenes in this short, and otherwise forgetful, feature where she absolutely lit into her quarry with precise and disguised jabs while among high society, and open unbridled fury when privacy permitted. I was on the floor when she called Geoff a "cut-rate gigolo" and that scene almost made the whole film worth the time. *Binging Bette Davis #12 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Tom M A terrible movie with despicable characters. Only Bette Davis' brilliance keeps you watching because she's adorable. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/09/20 Full Review Audience Member Improbable plot, but such fun! And really smart dialogue! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member short but sweet rom-dram. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Not really a great movie - one of Bette's earliest - but fun to see her for that reason alone if you are a fan of hers as I am. She's platinum blonde in this one. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
