Well Done Pre-Code Film
13 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Viewed this film online and it is a well made and wonderfully acted pre-code film. Warner Baxter and Dorothy Mackaill are excellent as the two leads and have a romance that is full of twists and turns. Zasu Pitts is a good supporting character and appears so much more youthful in this role and as the film progresses, she develops a good sense of the world. Nella Walker is good as well, as the insensitive and unkind mentor to Dorothy and trying to sabotage her happiness for wealth and position. Warner Baxter is devilishly charming in his role and he and Dorothy make a good pair. However, this is Dorothy's film and she is effective as the conflicted heroine, torn between money, love, family loyalty and friendship.
