Poor factory girl (Joan Crawford) goes to New York to find fame and fortune. She quickly becomes a "kept" woman for a rich lawyer (Clark Gable--without his moustache). But she can't keep her past away forever and things start to go terribly wrong.
Strong (for 1931), short (71 minutes) pre-Code drama. The script is sharp and believable, the direction good and there are some incredibly lavish settings. Also Crawford and Gable are just great in their roles and both of them look incredibly beautiful. There was a brief part at the end that I didn't buy, but that didn't destroy the picture at all. Well worth seeing for anybody, but a definite must for Crawford and Gable fans.
