The print shown on Turner Classic Movies, from Sony's archives, displays title credits which were modernized and re-designed in 1938 for a re-release that took place only after several minutes worth of deletions were made to meet the standards of the Production Code, which was more rigorously enforced starting in 1934.

Say Kit, won't you go to the show with me tonight?
Well, you can't do much with a crowd around.
That's why I like crowds.

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.
