Dynamite ** (1929, Conrad Nagel, Kay Johnson, Charles Bickford, Julia Faye, Joel McCrea) – Classic Movie Review 5544

Perhaps hampered by the primitive dawn-of-sound technology, producer-director Cecil B DeMille 1929 romantic drama movie is unusually uncertain, contrived and unconvincing hokum from this great Hollywood showman. Kay Johnson stars as heiress Cynthia Crothers who […]
