This film is grade-A, unadulterated junk food and thank goodness! This movie is pure fun, amiably corny and absolutely bonkers. The major setpiece involves a prosecutor flashing back to a Roman orgy (?) in the middle of a trial! (Lawyers, have you ever done this? How did it go over?)
Cecil B. DeMille is at his DeMille-iest, Leatrice Joy is a charming lead, Thomas Meighan seems a bit confused and Lois Wilson steals every scene she’s in. Park inhibition and good taste at the door and enjoy!
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
The crazy kids get together even though he railroaded her into a manslaughter conviction.
If it were a dessert it would be: Chocolate Sin. It’s big and fake and not health food by any means but you also will have no leftovers.
