A darling film starring youth
20 April 2001 | by melancholysugarcaneSee all my reviews

This film was incredibly sweet with Baby Peggy and Clara Bow. Although it lacked a strong story-line, one cannot help laughing along with the "babies" antics. Too, this is one of Clara Bow's earlier performances in which she doesn't play the "IT" girl, just a normal teenager. One can easily see the brilliance emerging from Clara with this performance.
