| Lucy Shines in Early Film Lead
Fans that have only seen Lucy in screwball comedy roles may be surprised that she was a very fine actress and can handle drama with great pathos. This film sort of tries to be a screwball comedy, popular in that era, but fails due to a choppy pacing, erratic editing and direction.

Watch this film and you'll root for Lucy, wishing she had a better film success as you see her real talent in one of her first leading roles.
