Lackluster Directing by Lionel Barrymore and the Slightest of Production Values Hampers this Little Pre-Coder. It Fails to be Much of a Movie but does have Some Interesting Artifacts of the Time.
The Razor Thin Difference Between Dancing for a Dime and Taking Money for Sex (Prostitution) is On Display Here with Some Double-Speak Dialog. There are a Few Intriguing Peaks at Behind the Scenes at the Dance Hall.
Barbara Stanwyck is Fine and Her Acting Talent is On Display in Many a Scenes as She Carries the Film Vacillating Between "Dancing" for a Living and Fulfilling Her Wifely Duties in the Home. Ricardo Cortez is Good as a "Decent" Rich Guy (for a change in the 1930's) and is Warm and Approachable.
The Film is No Great Shakes but is Worth a Watch for the World of Depression Era Girls at Work and Play, and a Good Soap Opera Plot. After the Code, the Divorce Angle, So Integral to the Story would have made This One a No-No.
