Francine Daniels: Oooh, Jerry, I can't. I'm lying down. I have an awful headache.
Geraldine 'Gerry' March: Yeah? What have YOU got in there to ache?
Francine Daniels: Oh, you wouldn't care if I was lying here dead!
Geraldine 'Gerry' March: Indeed, I would! You haven't paid your share of this month's rent. Snap out of it, Lady VanDerVere and put the the hardware on the table!

Joan Crawford was Radiant
12 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this 1930's film starring Joan Crawford, (Gerry March) who lives with several girls who all work for a department store, some girls sell perfume and most of them are fashion models. All the girls are looking for the right man to marry who has money and they also want to throw away their alarm clocks and stop working and have babies. Gerry March has been around the block a few times and is always on guard against men who try to hit on her mainly because they have hurt her very badly in the past. Gerry tries to caution all the girls and stays pretty much to herself until Tony Jardine, (Robert Montgomery) enters her life and she really falls for him in a big way until he brings her to his secret tree house which looks like a penthouse suite and stairs that fold up. Tony is her boss at the department store and after the tree house scene, Gerry writes him off her list as a typical male trying to score. Great entertaining film, and if you like to see what women wore in the 1930's this is the film for you.
