I saw a very murky, dark print (the film can be found), but it still engaged me completely, which is saying something given the condition of the print. I'll admit I'm a Constance Bennett fan, and this was made during her peak years. A social climbing girl finds out she was illegitimate and why, but doesn't realize she is guilty of the same superficiality as her mother. She follows the same path... I won't say more to not give away the story, but while the ending may be expected, it is an entertaining path getting there. There are no early 30s melodramatics here, the acting was quite good and I think it's the only opportunity to see Constance Bennett playing opposite here father Richard. If you like early talkie drama, this is highly recommended.
