    Comments about Our Modern Maidens:

    All three of the Crawford/Page "Our" films have something to recommend them, though none are really great films; in OUR MODERN MAIDENS, the standout moment would have to be Fairbanks Jr's impressions of his dad & a few others [they are very good!].

    Otherwise, MAIDENS is the one which most suggests Page deserved attention on par with Crawford -- she almost steals the film, and of course made the Oscar-winning BROADWAY MELODY the following year.

    Where OUR DANCING DAUGHTERS was a silent with music, and OUR BLUSHING BRIDES an early talkie, MAIDENS lands in between with music & sound effects; the three together thus bridge the silent-to-sound transition, and IMO are all worth seeing (and owning)

        Comments about Our Modern Maidens:

        I have been waiting for this DVD for a long time. I am a huge Joan Crawford fan and I find it terribly sad that so many of her film have not been released to DVD. Glad to see so many Crawford DVD releases in 2010! Now what about Our Blushing Brides, The Bride Wore Red, Winners of the Wilderness, Untamed, Montana moon, I live My Life... LETTY LYNTON!!!
