Movie Reviews

Decent little film marred by poor print & transfer
Michael Favareille | Pinole, CA United States | 09/24/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Nice little exploitation gem from 1938. A couple who is secretly married (he's from wealthy background, she is not) and she has a child. His parents want nothing to do with her and the child's mother decides to put the kid in an orphanage to be adopted. We see the kid get older and eventually fall in with shady people. The mother becomes a judge and the original father becomes a crook. We see "racy" dancing and youths having a party with booze. (Tame now, but not then).

The print is rather bad on this one, especially the first reel, which is almost unwatchable and the original titles are missing. The audio needs to be raised in volume to be heard clearly. The story is good enough to recommend, but the print and transfer knock the rating down two notches."
