The first of two films with this title Joan Crawford appeared in. The second was the 1947 film Possessed (1947), for which she received an Oscar nomination. This makes Crawford the only star to appear in two completely different films with identical titles. See more »
In 1931, rising star Clark Gable & already established star Joan Crawford made three films together at MGM. This is probably the best of those three, and maybe the best of all eight they did over a nine-year period (STRANGE CARGO in 1940 follows second best). Crawford is a poor Pennsylvania factory worker, who decides to go to New York to find fortune and happiness, eventually with married lawyer Gable. The plot relies on the familiar "Crawford formula" of a rags-to-riches story. 3 out of 4 stars.
