Early sound film is a curiosity.
4 January 2003 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

The one about the beloved lady teacher keeps on coming back in various forms - GOOD MORNING MISS DOVE and the rest.

This 1930 try might have been forgotten if a few copies of the sound version, re-vamped from its silent origins had not survived. It's acquired synchronized dialogue like "Gee, she's regular" to go with an awful plot about the heroine losing her true love and devoting herself to the school till a bank fraud reduces her to scrubbing floors.

The delirium sequence where Bennett sees the class room filling with her see-through pupils is made genuinely eerie by the amplified whispers added and there are a few attention getting scenes like the one in the authentic factory pressing shop.

The star of the silent STELLA DALLAS gets by in the lead but, as if frequently the case, the most intriguing aspect of films from this era is watching inexperienced film makers provide solutions to the new problems of sound.
