  • Stanwyck saves the film!

    If it wasn't for Barbara Stanwyck's great acting ability, even as a young actress, this film would have gone into oblivion. It is absolutely laughable in parts! The makeup is atrocious and Lowell Sherman, the boozy friend, is made up to look exactly like one of the fiends in "The Perils of Pauline" shorts! I realize talkies were just feeling their way into films when this was made but there were others that weren't this bad, and she was in much better silents! It's a sappy story with none of the trademark Stanwyck hardness built in. Again, she was only 22 then. I'm glad I saw the film, as it gave me a great feel for the actress Stanwyck became later. "Stella Dallas" came but six years later and the transformation was incredible by then. My personal favorite is "Ball of Fire," as it showed every facet of Stanwyck's acting abilities. This film doesn't begin to cover any of them!

  • Early Stanwyck/Capra films SHOULD be on DVD

    From "Ladies of Leisure", "Miracle Woman", "Forbidden", and "Bitter Tea of General Yen"; these films SHOULD be available on DVD. These films are absolute cinematic treasures that are rare to find, and impossible to watch on VHS. Please Please produce a 4 film compilation of these pre code gems!!!!

  • Great Old Film

    I love 'Ladies of Leisure' - it's a terrific example of Pre-Code cinematic art. Pay close attention to the budding talent of Stanwyck, this film showcases her terrific ability to convey every emotion, her facial expressions are incredible. Love the Penthouse on top of a New York skyscraper - where can I buy one of those?! Marie Prevost is great as the wisecracking sidekick girlfriend, listen carefully for her line, 'You can't weigh sex appeal' in an early scene. Just a wonderful film, a creaker for sure but worth the view! Early Frank Capra!!
