(There is a sound version, with a smattering of dialogue added. My review is for the silent one.)
I'm starting to really like Norma Shearer! She comes across as very natural onscreen - and when she is a bit affected, she's cute and spunky enough that you don't mind. This, her last silent film, finds her as Dolly, aka Angel Face, a grifter who thinks she's found an easy mark in trusting country boy Steve Crandall (Johnny Mack Brown - who always does well in these "gosh-golly-gee" roles). Once she marries him, however, and makes her way back to his Southern "plantation", she finds herself falling in love with him despite things not being quite what she'd expected. When her old partners in crime, Brad and Gwen (a convincingly oily and smarmy Lowell Sherman, and the appropriately hard-boiled Gwen Lee) show up at Steve's home looking for a piece of the action, does Dolly admit her past - or let Steve be taken for everything he's got?
It's a funny, good-hearted film, with clever intertitles. Also: keep your eyes open for a silly little cameo by Polly Moran.
I give this one:
