As the Great War breaks out, Ann Vickers -- serious, independent, and forthright -- embarks on a passionate love affair with an officer who jilts her before she can tell him she's pregnant. After an abortion, she throws herself into social work, stirring things up at a woman's prison and writing a best-seller about the experience. Back in Manhattan, she runs a halfway house for paroled women and meets an equally free-thinking jurist, Barney Dolphin, who's estranged from his wife (she doesn't believe in divorce) and under investigation for corruption. They begin an affair and have a child just as he's indicted. The scandal ruins her career; can they flout convention and find happiness? Written by

John Kelly as Dr. Alstein and Mona Dolphin are in studio records/casting call lists for this movie. Kelly was not seen in the print, and since Mona Dolphin was the character name of Barney's wife, it is likely that no such actress existed. Ferdinand Gottschalk is listed for the role of Dr. Slenk, but that role was played by Murray Kinnell. Kitty Kelly and Robert Benchley were mentioned as cast members in a news item, but they did not appear in the movie. See more »
Although the first part of the picture takes place in 1918, all of Irene Dunne's hairstyles and clothes are strictly in the 1933 mode. See more »
Lackluster romantic drama with feminist elements. Basically it's Irene Dunne spouting off about wanting to have her own career and being involved in relationships with douchebags. All of the success she has career wise is ultimately attributed to a man and the film's message seems to be that a woman's happiness only comes from the love of a man, so I really don't see where feminists are supposed to find much to love about this film. The brief middle part of the film dealing with the brutal goings-on at a women's prison are most interesting. They should've made an entire film of that. The rest is forgettable. The cast is fine. No standouts. Edna May Oliver is wasted, which is just criminal.
