Eu sei que o Brown é um importante diretor pre-code, mas fora alguns momentos mais picantes ousados para a época, é um filme bem genérico, embora Lionel Barrymore brilhe como usual. DVD Obras-primas do Cinema Coleção Dose Dupla: Norma Shearer.

Interesting period piece, but mostly embarrassing. Gable is the only really interesting thing on the screen.

I loved a lot about this movie, most of all Lionel Barrymore performance as a drunken lawyer which he got an Oscar for best male actor. Norma Shearer playing his daughter was a mixed bag with some unintentional hilarious close-ups, but she sure had her charm as well. But probable the most important thing about this movie historically was Clark Gable before he was a mega star playing a rough gangster. And you could clearly see his magnetism and why he would from then on become a major player.
