"Mae Murray danced through life as it if were a dream world and she its faraway princess. A romantic, she behaved as if reality simply didn't exist, and then was wounded to the quick when no one understood her butterfly nature ... She was not an actress: she was a dancer with a tantalizing image that the camera captured in a quicksilver flash. On the screen she came vividly alive. Unfortunately, her bright stardust personality depended on youth ... In the end, she escaped from her tangled web of self-deceit and took refuge in another dream world, a fantasy land where she ruled and gave royal commands that must be obeyed on the instant." --DeWitt Bodeen in Films in Review, December 1975.
