| early Hawksian comedy
One of Howard Hawks's early efforts, this delightful comedy already presages many of the thematic concerns of his later masterpieces. The Garden of Eden bookends resemble a silent-era "Flintstones", with rocks and dinosaurs ingeniously serving modern bourgeois purposes. The contemporary section is a sophisticated comedy of manners, taking jabs at the evolving status of women and the never-changing essential obsessions of the sexes. George O'Brien expertly plays the idealized American male, and sidekick Heinie Conklin has several fine slapstick moments. The intertitle dialogue is also highly amusing.
