Dwan, a cinematic rationalist, contrasts earnest science with decadent art; he films workaday troubles with analytical comedic flair...

It enables Miss Swanson to follow the course which was first charted for her in The Humming Bird and, while it fails to live up to the high promise established therein, it at least proves that she is traveling in the right direction.

Frivolous and even forgettable (Swanson masquerading as a Russian impresario would have been delectable as a talkie).

August 25, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Strange comedy drama about a woman who is a relentless flirt, and the problems she gets into.
