Directed by Robert Z. Leonard
USA 1933


  This 1933 Joan Crawford vehicle was smart and light enough to become the biggest hit of her early career. Crawford climbs the ladder from chorus girl to Broadway star while debating the relative merits of suitors Clark Gable and Franchot Tone. In the final production number, she gets an assist from a fresh-faced kid from New York--Fred Astaire, in his first screen appearance.

A little dark at times but otherwise this transfer looks very good. It is fairly clean with decent gray-scale. Good detail and some minor digital noise round out this DVD image as being quite acceptable considering the age of the film. Audio is clear and consistent. Two vintage shorts including the Stooges as a group and one with just Curly - they aren't vintage stooge but they are kinda fun.
