Mary Stevens (Kay Francis) and her old friend Don Andrews (Lyle Talbot) find themselves graduating from medical school at the same time. They decide to set up their respective medical offices in the same building. Mary builds her reputation despite many patients refusing to be treated by a woman. Don, however, begins dating Lois Cavanaugh (Thelma Todd), whose family is rich and influential, and neglects his practice for the privileges of a social life. Despite Mary's love for Don, he marries Lois and sets up a new office with a high class clientele. He also gives Mary a new office right next to his; while she ends up making a name for herself in the medical community, Don begins to pilfer funds from his practice. Jealousy and mistrust drive Mary and Don apart, seemingly for good. Two years go by and Mary, now a famous doctor, takes a much-needed vacation. While on vacation she runs into Don, who is now on the lam from the authorities. Mary and Don have an affair, and Don tries to get ... Written by Stacia Kissick <>

Great 1930's Classic Film!
13 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Over the years I seemed to have missed this classic film with a story line that must have shocked the audiences during the 1930's. Kay Francis,(Dr. Mary Stevens),"Divorce",'45 was a single woman who was having an affair with Lyle Talbot,(Dr. Donald A. Andrews),"It Happened in New York",'35, who was married and not very happy at all. Donald tired to get a divorce from his wife, but her father objected for family reasons and she even lied to him about having a baby. Dr. Mary Stevens winds up really having a baby from Dr. Andrews and the plot gets dramatic on a voyage with her new born baby and the threat of Infantile Paralysis. Una O'Connor (Mrs. Arnell Simmons),famous for her screams and high pitched voice in "The Invisible Man", as an inn keepers wife and many other horror films, has a baby girl who catches the infantile paralysis and needs immediate help. If you want to see a good classic film, with great actors playing very immoral lives during those days of living standards, view this film about divorce and babies born out of wedlock. This film is mild compared to 2004 !
