The pool is the same one that can be seen in the musical number "By a Waterfall" from the Warner Bros. production "Footlight Parade", also released 1933. In this film, the scenes there are photographed with a different camera angle and while reusing the song "Shanghai Lil" from that other film. See more »
Approx 4 minutes in: (While Alison is talking with Harrier Brown) The placement of the crane, and the puffs of dark smoke outside the window change abruptly; it is obvious that the filming was not done in a continuous take. See more »
Chatterton eats men for breakfast in this pre code gem
This comedy should be a pre-code document, just as the code was about to be imposed. The sexual conduct of Ruth Chatterton's character is mind blowing in this 1933 flick. Reminded me of Demi Moore in "Disclosure" with a major difference, Ruth Chatterton devours her minions not because she is some kind of monster but as simple mater of fact. h inherited a man's role and she loves it. The last few minutes of "Female" are a forced betrayal of the intention and the morality tale becomes an ominous warning sign for all entrepreneurial females. So blunt! Inspite of the ending this is a gem that should be seen. I guarantee you it will leave you open mouthed. Ruth Chatterton is not just amazingly modern in her upper class Mae Westish part but her performance is truly superb
