George W. Hill’s early talkie may only be an hour long but it was enough to earn Canadian born Marie Dressler a well-deserved best actress Oscar and propel the portly dour-faced sixty-two year old to superstardom. Alternately hilarious (a heated wrestling match between Dressler and Beery is priceless!) and deeply affecting à la "Stella Dallas" as we see a lower class woman willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of a child. The comic timing is impeccable giving many of the lines a spontaneous ad-libbed feel while the dramatic turns successfully combine earthy dialogue with silent era theatrics. A wonderful little gem from the beginning of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
