Storyline

Susan, an orphan, lives the life of Cinderella with rustic relatives. She escapes one stormy night when the fiance her relatives chose tries to force his attentions. Rodney, an architecht, is the prince who rescues her, but he has to take a trip and the wicked relatives catch up with her again. Her next rescuer is a tatooed lady in a circus who can't save her from the circus manager. Rodney shows up and dismisses her as a fallen woman. Susan moves up in the world to the penthouse of a politician who can offer a construction contract to Rodney. Rodney says no and flees to the jungle with Susan in pursuit.

Trivia

When MGM chief Irving Thalberg found that three secretaries in his outer office remembered the 1917 David Graham Phillips novel well even though it had been missing from bookstores for over ten years, he decided to purchase the screen rights as a vehicle for Garbo. See more »

Quotes

Burlingham: [Referring to Susan] I wish she'd marry me. She's fine.
Rodney Spencer: [Mockingly] Marry! Say, listen, all you need is the price of a marriage license - just the price, not the wedding - just the price.

Garbo rises above all else
17 August 2001 | by (Washington state) – See all my reviews

This film is noteworthy because of the unique, mysterious, and wonderful screen presence of Greta Garbo. She is thoroughly convincing as the vulnerable young woman at the beginning of the film, and as her character becomes more worldly but still vulnerable she remains convincing. Occasionally she might lapse into acting that would seem to the modern viewer to be overly dramatic, but overall she is brilliant. Clark Gable is okay, but the construction of the film from a plot standpoint left something to be desired. Some things needed to be explained better. This seems to be a common problem with many early sound films as most of the 1928-31 sound films that I have seen are at times disjointed, leaving the viewer wondering why something occurred. That said, I recommend this film because of Garbo.
