Audience Reviews for The Sin of Madelon Claudet
antique drama won helen hayes her first oscar and in parts she's very good other times you can tell she's use to stage acting and projecting to the third balcony. as for the story it creaks.
Dated film that is all about Helen Hayes and how she managed to "play old" and "play young". The story must have been quite lurid at the time but is very tame today.
