Dick will do anything to protect his sister Jean as would her father. But she is in love with sleazy Harry Swift who has his eye on her money. When Harry has her stay with him at a hotel all night, her father still will not give his permission for a wedding. Harry threatens to tell everyone about Jean, and Dick shoots him dead. Jean cannot forgive either her father or her brother and will testify against Dick even if it means the gas chamber for her brother. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Still Potent
26 November 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Helen Twelvetrees is a spoiled rich girl who falls for an obvious cad. He wants her money. She wants him. Her father doesn't approve. His hardworking father, Jean Hersholt, doesn't either.

Most of all, her brother doesn't approve. The brother is played by Robert Young. He gives an excellent performance that is not at all perky or cute. His character seems dazed but also driven.

Indeed, there is a strong hint of more than brotherly love in the feelings he shows for her. Notging like those in "Scraface," still shocking over seventy years later. But it's there.

The movie is very good and never gives in to sentimentality.

I like Twelvestrees. She was attractive and acted well. She ought not to have been shot from behind, which she is often in his movie. Her face, not her derrière, was her strong point.
