Critics reviews

Fields delivers his full repertory of grimaces and double takes, stumbles and eruptions, and La Cava leavens the comedy with enough drama to make it sting. The compact action is rich in texture; a long, loopy sequence on a train seems filmed in actual motion, and a surprise encounter with a Spanish princess (Alice Joyce) highlights the sad fantasy of a real-life Bisbee’s chances amid the slim prospects and narrow morals of small-town life.
