Extravagance (1930) June Collyer






Director:

 Phil Rosen

Writers:

 Andrew Percival Younger

Stars:

 June CollyerLloyd HughesOwen Moore

This is the story of a selfish woman (June Collyer) that promised to love, honor and obey, but instead of helping her husband (Lloyd Hughes) she accepts money from a slimy stock broker to buy a sable coat. Money needed to save her husbands business from bankruptcy. Nice little Pre-Code movie with a good cast. Both June Collyer and Lloyd Hughes were veteran actors who managed the transition from silent to sound films. Collyer, although playing an unsympathetic charter, makes you want her to do the right thing. Lloyd Hughes plays the sap as he try's to give her what she wants, but its not enough.  How far will she go to get what she wants? Watch and find out. ★★★
