The Briefest of Reviews from 1928

Reason to love Netflix #7,922: I have been wanting to see Sadie Thompson for years. Mostly because I, of course, love Gloria Swanson in Sunset Blvd. At any rate, I haven't been able to find it anywhere. All of a sudden, though, it popped up on Netflix Instant. So I watched it for free one evening a week or two ago. The restoration is cleaner than expected, the story is delightful and sexy, and the acting is simply superb. Highly recommended!
