Goofs

Lola calls to tell Ken she won't be home for dinner. He leaves the apartment, throwing his apron out in the hallway. When Lola comes home, she finds the apron on the living room floor, and the light in the kitchen turned off, but Ken apparently didn't come home again before she did, and couldn't have done either.

Quotes

Doctor: Haven't you brought enough unhappiness to your husband without jeopardizing his life?
Lola Davis: I...?!?
Doctor: Let me give you a little advice. One way or another, a man will find a woman to look out for him not only when he's sick but when he's well. That's something you so-called "modern girls" never seem to count on. You talk about freedom, because you think it's something men have and cherish. But they don't. They hate it. They get along best when they're *not* free. It's human nature, that's all. They need...

A good study in the ultimate male chauvinism of the 1930's
15 March 2011 | by (San Fernando Valley) – See all my reviews

The only value of this film is as propaganda showing the ultimate male chauvinism of the day. Loretta Young is a hard working business woman who needs her career to support an ungrateful, untalented and unloving husband. She works hard and tries to make her marriage work but her husband played by George Brent is unrelenting in his demands that she give up her career and be a normal housewife. Today it would be considered a tragedy of major scope.

I love watching Loretta Young with her loose and sexy dresses with plunging necklines and sexy pouty lips but it was torture to see her character subject herself to the outrageous demands of the people in her life to be less than human. The film presents this as not only appropriate behavior but the only acceptable behavior for a woman.

The only use this film has would be in a woman's study course to show the extremes of male chauvinism.
