After a full screen newspaper headline that reads "KITTY LANE NAMED IN DIVORCE SUIT" we see Barbara Stanwyck holding a different newspaper that reads "FATAL FALL CLIMAXES FATAL DIVORCE RAID" but no mention is made of such an incident at any time, so this must have been one of the deleted sequences.

[trying to bribe Kitty to give David up]
I thought you'd prefer cash. Five thousand dollars. Merely for leaving town, immediately.

What are you trying to make of me--what you wish I was? Something cheap and common, something that money can buy?
[her anger rising]

This was a surprise of a film starring Barbara Stanwyck, (Kitty Lane) who plays the role as a waitress in a small town and is liked by everyone. Kitty is a nice gal and is very much in love with a boy named David Livingston, (Regis Toomey) who comes from a rich family and he lives with his mother who loves him very much and is very protective of who he see's and what he does. As a few years pass by, David asks Kitty to marry him, but his mother interferes and contacts a judge who manages to put poor Kitty in a girls reformatory in order to prevent her son from getting married. As many years pass by, David becomes a very successful surgeon and Kitty becomes very well known. This is a very interesting love story and Barbara Stanwyck gave an outstanding performance. Sasu Pitts, (Dot) a veteran actress gave a great supporting role Don't miss this film, it is truly a great Stanwyck Classic Film.
