| Sentimental film is saved by Menjou's powerful screen presence
This film suffers from not so well written and too sentimental dialogues. Although the improbabilities within the plot are quite acceptable given the melodramatic cliche's, some of the scenes that should have been the most important ones, get so sentimental that they make you feel uneasy. One big question for me left unanswered throughout the picture; why does Goldie not want to go back home? Anyway, the presence of Menjou is rather impressive and he really carries the whole story which otherwise would be uninteresting.
