Spite Marriage 1929

It's hilarious. It's intense. It has everything a good comedy should have. And is without those wise-cracking titles. It's as Chaplinesque as anything Busier Keaton has ever done and it proves Dorothy Sebastian a charming comedienne of the highest calibre. For all its fun, it is the story of a great love, more pathetic, more vital than many of the Immortal Romances. See it!
