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.

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.

A delightful classic, Marie Dressler, as always is wonderful. It balances drama and comedy very well. Great supporting cast. Well produced.

Sadly is a forgotten movie now, but Marie Dressler performance in this movie deserved attention forever. At a time when actress acted so stagey and melodramatic on the screen, Marie came up with a natural performance and bad mood expression that fits so well to this strong woman, Min. The final scene, that look in her face that mix fatigue and winning feeling is priceless. So modern.
