Theodore 'Ted' Martin:
So why didn't you answer the wires I sent you?
Jerry Bernard Martin:
Oh, there was a lot to think about. And the longer you wait, the more sense you get.
Theodore 'Ted' Martin:
You know, letting things ride the way you did, certainly whipped me plenty. Boy, you know I imagined all sorts of receptions when I got home.

The scene where Norma Shearer begs Chester Morris to stay together in their marriage is truly riveting and powerful . It is one of the most truly amazing performances on film. I remember being so genuinely blown away by the beauty and power of that performance that I jumped out of my chair to grab the rental box positive she must have won an Oscar, she had. Very sexy movie, Robert Montgomery is smooth as always. I see some people found it hokey or contrived, I did not, The emotions covered here are as relevant today as in 1930. Attractive, complex characters. For the romantic in all of us, where decency and honor will prevail.
