Overview

Yet another variation on the already then-ancient Madame X theme, this early talkie stars Helen Twelvetrees in the title role, a small-town girl marrying a New York City businessman James Hall. The union produces a daughter, but ends when Millie catches her husband with a mistress Marie Astaire. Attempting to make a life for herself without turning to gold-digging, like her friends, Angie Joan Blondell and Helen Lilyan Tashman, Millie is once again disappointed by a man when reporter boyfriend Tommy Robert Ames is found in another girl's apartment. Years later, a nearly destitute and much hardened Millie discovers that an old admirer, Jimmy Damier John Halliday, is about to seduce her now 17-year-old daughter, Connie Anita Louise. Catching the couple almost in the act, Millie shoots and kills Jimmy, but is acquitted when the jury learns the identity of the molested girl. Millie was an independent Charles R. Rogers production sold to RKO when producer Rogers joined that company.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Helen Twelvetrees actually socks Marie Astaire right in the kisser in Millie, an otherwise rather humdrum affair enlivened slightly by a supporting cast that includes such scene stealers as Lilyan Tashman and Joan Blondell. The latter gets a couple of rather risqué lines, but most of the dialogue is early talkie stuffy.
