hera holden’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is a very specific era of films that is super fascinating to me; not just because it’s a pre-code talkie, but also because it’s when silent actors are transitioning to sound. The acting is extremely over dramatic, in the style of silent films, but feels slightly odd because the actors are speaking.
Clara Bow is amazing, as always. It’s insane for me to think about how they basically just threw her into talkies without the extensive training they gave other actors and actresses. She’s so incredibly talented, she is what makes this film.
