Trivia

In order to correctly write a script that would depict the experience of a woman being arrested and imprisoned, screenwriter Jeanie Macpherson arranged, at Cecil B. DeMille's behest, to be imprisoned for stealing a fur piece from a friend (with whom she had worked out an agreement beforehand). She was arrested in Detroit, and spent three days in jail before a police official discovered the truth and arranged for her release. See more »

Your basic programmer magazine story film
25 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Pretentious, preachy, magazine-style "sob story" film delivers on all its basic promises, which are few. There's the obligatory "Roman Orgy" scene, of course. Well, the "hero" is, although he's the D.A., inexplicably hanging out at a "bootlegger" party, and he starts spouting off about how awful it all is -- girls racing on pogo sticks!!! -- just like ancient Rome. He comes off as self-righteous and boring. Later on in the film, he becomes a self-righteous, boring drunk, and the girl he sent to prison for manslaughter "saves" him (!). Best scene: the cop on the bike flipping over a car.
