Overview

Synopsis

Secret Sinners
A whole slew of former silent-film favorites shows up in Mayfair's Secret Sinners. Dilettante songwriter Jack Mulhall falls in love with chorus girl Sue Carol and promises to marry her -- as soon as he can get a divorce from his wife Natalie Morehead. As the months pass, Carol becomes convinced that Mulhall has been stringing her along. Out of spite, she begins a romance with fellow hoofer Nick Stewart. When it turns out that Mulhall was sincere all along, Stewart obligingly steps out of the picture to allow our heroine a happy-ever-after. No secrets, no sinners. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Beauty Parlor
Before he moved to MGM, director Richard Thorpe virtually lived at the tiny production firm of Chesterfield-Invincible. Thorpe's Beauty Parlor is a Chesterfield programmer that aspires to be Grand Hotel. The titular parlor is the setting for a multitude of comic and dramatic episodes, most of them involving manicurists Barbara Kent and Joyce Compton. Among the supporting players is Mischa Auer, essaying one of the villainous roles he was stuck with before turning to zany comedy parts in the mid-1930s. Beauty Parlor wraps up all its loose plot strands in 66 minutes. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
