That was kind of a rotten thing to do, Anne. After all, Gallagher's my friend. The least you can do is be courteous to her.
I thought I was very charming, Stewart.
You did? That's a lot of hooey. I'll go and apologize.

The most notable thing about this movie is Robert Williams unusual performance. I've seen performances like it but none of them were in 1931 and I was surprised I'd never heard of him. Turns out he *died* in 1931, and it's worth watching the movie just to see someone who could have been a star. The movie itself is quite enjoyable, although Harlow makes little impression as a society dame and it's difficult to believe the enticing Loretta Young could be any one's idea of "one of the boys."
