    Comments about Let Us Be Gay (MOD):

    The Warner Archive edition of this long-unreleased pre-Code society comedy smoothes out the difficulties usually encountered in early talking pictures. Here, the sound is never harsh and the visuals are unmuddied. While "Let Us Be Gay" never really gets past its stage origins (the dominating latter two-thirds of the film take place during a society party), it stands out with a daring performance by Norma Shearer, currently (wrongly) maligned for portraying goody-two-shoes roles. Her early talking picutre roles, however, usually consist of "modern" women, and "Let Us Be Gay" lets us see her taking more daring steps: in the first third of the film, she appears without make-up and usually wearing pince-nez. Her transition from frump to glamour girl is all the more powerful because she took these personal/public risks with her persona. Fans of "pre-Code" films should snap this up at once; those wishing to rediscover Norma Shearer should also check this one out.
