wife goes to work in 1930s
9 December 2018 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Some big names in this one from the 1930s... Lyle Talbot had started in films right around the advent of talkies. Sydney Toler played Charlie Chan SO many times. Bebe Daniels was queen of the shortz in the silent films, and transitioned into sound films. Here, Sylvia ( Daniels) is married to a real SOB, and when he's injured, she goes back to work as a nurse, hoping to have hubby operated on. It's alright. kind of goes on and on. Clearly, she has to work to support herself, but she kind of leads everyone on and on and on, so it gets repetitious after a while. S'okay. has a plausible story. Directed by frenchman Robert Florey. Florey had arrived in hollywood in the late 1920s.
