Enjoyable
3 January 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

John Day (Richard Dix) has a pretty young wife (Madge Evans) who wants the finer things in life. He can't seem to say no to her so he embezzles money in order to support her expensive lifestyle. He gets caught and goes to jail, thanks in part to a crooked lawyer hired by George Hollins (Conway Tearle), a rich lecher who wants Day's wife. While in jail, Day's faithful maid and nanny (Una Merkel) lovingly takes care of his children while his wife is seduced by Hollins.

Entertaining melodrama with good performances by lantern-jawed Dix and the always adorable Una Merkel. There are several twists in the plot and not all of them are predictable. I especially enjoyed the climactic scene on the top of the county jail. Spanky from Our Gang plays one of the kids.
