Marie Dressler won the Best Actress Oscar for this MGM film, which was a huge hit, turning her and Wallace Beery into Hollywood's most popular stars in the early 1930s.

Audience Reviews for Min and Bill

The insurmountable Frances Marion, of early talkie melodramas, co-wrote this one. Stars Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery add a fair amount of warmhearted, ornery humor to the drama. The often drunk fisherman, scrappy low-rent hotel-owner, and orphan girl coming-of-age make for an unconventional little family. Their concern for each other is touching. The difficult life choices they face are still relevant today.

One that likely is happy sitting in the vault. The relationship between Min and Bill is interesting if not overly compelling. Apparently this was quite the film to see in 1930 but I would argue that that is more of a case of having little competition.
