The Mississippi Gambler 1929

Even the most blithe of Mississippi colonels should feel depressed at the assault and battery of the soft Southern accent in this picture. Joan Bennett and Alec B. Francis achieve only a cross between a rich Irish brogue and California British. Putting Joseph Schildkraut in the same costumes he wore in "Show Boat" was an economic fluke on the part of Universal. At moments the film achieves a certain charm.
All Talkie.
