And I have just made a change to include Anne Baxter.

It's A Great Life (1929)

ROSETTA AND VIVIAN DUNCAN

This movie stars the fabulous Duncan Sisters in their only full length feature film. This was a real gem of a film. One of the first talkie musicals and also one of the first films with color sequences.

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke.
