Three Wise Girls

Three small-town girls come to New York. One gets an apartment in Park Ave, with a banker paying the bills. When he goes back to his wife she shuffles off. The second girl addresses envelopes for a living and marries a chauffeur. The third goes back home disgusted because the boyfriend can't get a divorce from his wife, but he gets his freedom and comes after her.

Jean Harlow has the lead – the girl who keeps straight. She does her best to suggest the innocent young thing and does better than might be expected. But she fails to be convincing and Mae Clarke takes the acting honors from her, even with her stilted speeches. Marie Prevost struggles gamely with the comedy. Natalie Moorhead has one brief scene, which adds another good name to the cast. Walter Byron carries himself nicely as the sincere lover, and Jameson Thomas keeps just this side of overacting the heavy.
