The third of five times Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea were paired opposite each other, Rachel Crothers’ adaptation of her play is a sparky melodrama. She’s the poor girl he marries and his family isn’t pleased – they’re on the verge of destitution and needed a wealthy in-law. She charms another man of their acquaintance who starts paying the bills for them and McCrea’s brother David Niven crawls to her for money …Sheer star power fuels this drama, a rise and fall story in which the leads learn their lesson and try to find their real selves in the middle of Manhattan social pressures and slut-shaming. Hopkins practically bristles onscreen! Directed by Elliott Nugent.
