Critic Reviews for Susan Lenox: Her Fall and Rise

All Critics (1)

A second-tier Garbo potboiler is still worth watching, even if the plot is preposterous, plus it's the only film the Divine made with the then rising star, Clark Gable.

Garbo and Gable's personalities are like oil and water but they look good together and the film is entertaining of its type.
