Bright Lights (1930)/The Reckless Hour (1931)

  
Format:  
 
 
This Dorothy Mackaill double bill starts with the tune-filled early talkie melodrama "Bright Lights," which casts her as a stage actress basking in her last appearance before retiring to married life with a rich swain. Unfortunately, flashbacks show that her past wasn't that pretty...and it's about to catch up with her. Frank Fay, Noah Beery co-star under Michael Curtiz's direction; look for a debuting John Carradine. AKA: "Adventures In Africa." Then, "The Reckless Hour" casts her as a shopgirl left with child and embittered by playboy cad Walter Byron, with only the kind attentions of artist Conrad Nagel between her and complete ruin. Joan Blondell, H.B. Warner co-star. 140 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
