Storyline

Norma Besant, daughter of a Southern doctor, is an incorrigible flirt and has many boys on her string. She begins to favor Michael Jeffrey, who, shiftless and hot-tempered but fundamentally honorable, is warned off by her father. When Michael returns after a long absence, the pair are innocently compromised, and Dr. Besant's old-South paternal rage brings tragedy. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Mary Pickford was a great actress
14 December 2012 | by waelkatkhudaSee all my reviews

before you watch this film you must know it is not a grate movie such as GWTW (gone with the wind ) cause it was released in 1929, which mean it was The first talkie film for Mary Pickford so the sound isn't that much but it isn't that bad. It was a lovely thing to watch a film in 1929 to know how much they were brave to start a new line , Miss Pickford was The first Major actress to speak in a movie she was a very brave lady and the only reason I put 7 out of 10 is because of her acting, her voice was very good at that time (which is because she acted in the theater at the beginning of her career), although her acting was such like an acting on the stage, but she has her moments especially at her final scene she brought it to the screen perfectly
