Plot

The Mummers Vs Barbarella This Is Heaven YouTube

Vilma Banky portrays a newly arrived Hungarian immigrant who learns to accustom herself to the new and strange life she finds in New York. The story gave Miss Banky moments of comedy and pathos. First seen as a frightened little peasant muffled in countless petticoats and shawls --- then in a neat waitress's uniform as she flips hotcakes in a restaurant window.

Production background

What if THIS is Heaven by Anita Moorjani Reviews Discussion

This film was released in both silent and sound versions.

This is heaven vine YouTube

Uncertain about the future of sound films, believing that his product should either be all-talking or all-silent. With Vilma Bánky less than diligent about her vocal lessons, Goldwyn inserted three talking sequences into this silent picture then sat on the film for several months. His instincts proved correct: the box office didn't like it much either. Bánky would make only three more films.

Reception

In a review in the St. Louis Star, published July 1, 1929, it was declared that "Vilma's voice pleases, though it is less lovely than her blonde profile. Vilma's heaven is the tiny apartment the immigrant girl is getting in marrying James Hall, supposed chauffeur. The chauffeur is a millionaire....Best shots are the Ellis Island episodes.
