DirectorGeorge Cukor
CastJohn Barrymore Katharine Hepburn Billie Burke David Manners Henry Stephenson
NotesMan released from mental hospital returns to wife and a daughter he doesn't know. A theatrical film about hereditary insanity. Better than it sounds with good performances and Hepburn's debut. Whether it uses insanity more than as a tool for melodrama I don't remember. Re-made in 1940.
