Hey, wait a minute. Where are you going?
Now, listen. We've had a big evening. I took you dancing and bought you an elegant supper. Now, you get on your bicycle and peddle along, wherever you're going.
I'm going with you!
Oh, no. You're a nice kid, but, I don't take up pick-ups home with me. Understand? Good night.

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
