Any movie with Florence Marly is a good movie. Although she is billed sixth in the official cast list, Florence is far more prominently featured in many of Republic's posters (particularly the one sheet, the three sheet and the six sheet) than any other members of the cast, including the Bernard Brothers themselves. Certainly her role is by no means large (she doesn't come into the action until it's three-quarters over), but she alone makes the movie worth viewing. The Bernard Brothers may have been a wow on the stage (they were the first Americans to star in a West End pantomime, namely "Cinderella", and were then held over at the London Palladium to top a variety bill with Eleanort Powell) but their movie appeal is, to say the least, limited. Dull direction by Bud Springsteen doesn't boost the movie's stocks any either. (The director was always billed as R.G. Springsteen, but everyone from Republic's gatemen to President Herbert J. Yates called him, "Bud". There was none of this "Mr Springsteen wants quiet on the set" nonsense. It was always, "Bud would like you to stand over here. He'll be with you in a moment!")
