Wow! And you thought old movies were stuffy!, 5 July 2001
Author: David Atfield (bits@alphalink.com.au) from Canberra, Australia

This is one of the raciest films of the 1930's. A married woman is having affairs all over the place, and then is willingly seduced by a gallant jewel thief. The movie just drips with illicit sex - you've got to see this one to believe it. Damn the Production Code for stopping films like this! Wavising Kay Fwancis has never been better!
