Marion Davies has a hardcore fanbase and you got to be a part of that base to love this movie as much as the IMDB score of would indicate (Gloria Swanson & William Haines has similar inflated numbers from the classic/silent years, even for lost movies, where groups have falsely hyped the profile of their cult star). For the rest of us this is a fairly bland comedy trapped in the dawn of sound/5(47). Leslie Stuart () was a British songwriter best remembered as the composer of the hit show, Florodora. He began writing popular songs as a teenager, first for blackface and vaudeville performers, and eventually for more "legitimate" shows and revues.

Florodora is an originally British musical comedy that came out toward the very end of The Gay '90s, just before The Edwardian Era commenced. Its book was written by Jimmy Davis using the pseudonym Owen Hall, and most of its music composed by Leslie Stuart. Paul Rubens contributed further songs and helped write lyrics along with Edward Boyd-Jones. The Floradora is named after a hugely successful musical comedy that first debuted in London’s West End in It made the transfer to Broadway a year later, and the story goes that at an after-show party, one of the lovely ladies from the cast asked the barkeeper to come up with something brand new.
