Coquette
Mary Pickford's first role in a talkie won an Oscar for her performance as a wealthy flapper from the South. Norma Besant (Pickford) has fallen in love with a man (Johnny Mac Brown) much less than her equal in economic class, and her father (John St. Polis) strenuously objects.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Vet silent actress Mary Pickford won her first and Only Best Actress Oscar for this melodrama, done better on stage with Helen Hayes."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The film is very stagy, the characters don't move around a lot, there is little editing within the scene, and the actors overact."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"I guess 1929 audiences knew a stinker when they saw one coming. There is very little to criticize in Coquette, because there is so little in it, period."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
