Good Early performances with lots of energy.
13 July 2000 | by bkatchaySee all my reviews

A Lady's Morals offers a good opportunity to catch Grace Moore in her brief career as well as a good, as always, early Wallace Beery. I find the performance of Gus Shy as the friend to be interesting and very focused. Mr. Shy's performance does register. Grace Moore shows that she was a relaxed performer.
