Movie Reviews

The "Full-length" version.

"This review is for the Alpha Home Entertainment version. I had already bought the Reel Classics version. The Reel Classics version has a superior print quality. The Alpha version is "whited-out" in many places and the print quality is okay to fair. The good thing about the Alpha version is that it includes a bunch of missing scenes that were nowhere to be found in the Reel Classics version. The missing scenes deal with more of the courting that the two main characters engage in. They really add a lot to the film.

Overall, the film is pretty good. Marsh is fantastic and beautiful. The guy (I'm sorry I forget his name) is a little stodgy, but a pretty good actor. Mary Kornman plays a very small part as Bobbie's (Marsh's) fickle younger sister. The basic plot is that two young adults are set-up and framed for a jewelry store robbery. They spend 18 months in jail and find that getting work and keeping it, is tough when you're out on parole. They team up (in more ways than one; you know what I mean?!) to try and get back their good name. The film is rather good; mostly because of Marsh. Too bad she wasn't used more.

I don't know which version you'd want to buy. The problem is that the two versions out there have definite pros and cons. Alpha offers the only full-length version, but Reel Classics offers far and away the superior print quality. You make the choice! But if you like mid 30s movies, this B is a good bet. Its worth the money for Marian Marsh alone."
