Trivia

The preview time of 75 minutes was reported by the Motion Picture Herald in its issue of 13 June 1931, so that it is possible that footage was added before the general release. In any case, RKO lost $215,000 on the film. See more »

A love quadrangle helps Depression era moviegoers to escape to opulence.
10 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the 1930s this is quite a revealing movie about how men use women and vice verse. It's as if this love quadrangle could have been filmed yesterday if it had starred current Hollywood actors/actresses who have already lived through such situations in their actual love lives.

Escaping depression era problems, many moviegoers went to the theater to forget the reality of their lives. The opulence of the sets and glamorous gowns might have provided the female viewers of the time with an opportunity to fancy the lives of the rich.

It's a classy, clean romp that might be considered for a re-make with a lot more skin showing.

The acting may be wooden in a few scenes, but altogether is made for a delightful viewing.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.
