Gilbert tentatively makes more talkies (Way for a Sailor, Gentleman's Fate, The Phantom of Paris, West of Broadway)—not all of them bad, but the reviews are scathing. His reputation and self-worth fall farther and farther, and his drinking increases. He does enjoy a brief fling with "Mexican Spitfire" Lupe Velez in 1931.
