Ambitious
20 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is pre-Code (the Maid's behind is prominently smacked) and pre-Welles/Hitchcock. So this can be described as 'reaching' more than authentically cinematic - but that's its central value: the striving, of the characters within the story, and the striving of Dieterle to tell the story visually.

At under one hour, there's no time for sentiment - there's barely time to fit in the subplot about rescuing the fiancée with the stolen jewelry - so at all levels it has to stay emotionally tough and rigid, and fully class conscious, which must have grated audiences at a time when so many were forcibly 'equalized' by mass unemployment. What grates today, in our PC world, is the servile treatment of the underclasses, and when spoiled people are ruined, they actually go to work(!) instead of spending half of the movie whining. Today, this would be about catharsis and self-pity...there was no room for such indulgences back then.

Many themes from this have been retranslated to such modern examples as "Wall Street". This is the pre-Code, pre-Brando, pre-New Cinema version of a chick flick, where women are treated as expensive objects, but women reciprocate by trading in wealthy men like so many bellwether stocks.
