By today's standards, this is not a good film. It is static and somewhat boring at times; resembling in some ways a filmed play (with a lot less movement). BUT it is an excellent sample of how the survivors of silents were coping with the advent of sound. Of course, the actors don't move very much. The film is very talky, but you can see the beginning of something great. Lombard is lovely here, and quite comfortable in the new mode (though some vestiges of silent film acting remain). Armstrong (who never has been a favorite of mine), is fine as Mahlon. He is stiff, but that is probably the camera restrictions.
So, while there is not a lot to in this film to make it appealing, do give it a look. It is a window back into the past - a baby step in the growth of a new industry.
