A must see "uncorseted" movie
11 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a must see for the quote that is cited by IMDb in its description. This quote should be as as famous as "Play it again, Sam" and all the other lines that the Oscars are touting this year. Note that "I am what I am" is right there, 1930, way before La Cage aux Folles. Watching a movie like this makes me understand that the strict enforcement of the Production Code in 1934 really was in lock-step with the rise of fascism worldwide - movies such as the Silver Horde were dangerous - immensely threatening to the patriarchy and those who supported it - "society women" (though many were rebelling) and working-class Roman Catholics (the 1934 role of the American Church in ensuring the 30-year enforcement of the production code is well documented). Like so many of these pre-Code movies, female liberation is simply a matter of fact - we need to watch these movies because we don't understand our history, both domestically and in the context of the rise of fascism in the 1930s, and this history desperately needs to be retold. These movies are the way in to understanding the sexual aspect of the political movement. Even if the rest of the movie is melodramatic bunk, everyone should have the above scene taped and ready to play whenever we despair that all the world's women will obtain freedom from fascism in any of its toxic manifestations. In this movie, Evelyn Brent, as a woman, runs circles around the actresses of that time who cemented their fame for prosperity - Crawford, Davis, Hepburn, but she shall have the last laugh when they "settle things in this world or the next" (notice her use of "or" - another term paper there) for it is she who delivers these magnificent lines...
