This is a great film with an absolutely amazing script. While Margaret Sulivan has a tremendous break out performance, in my opinion it is John Boles as the philandering Jim and Billie Burke as the suffragist aunt that really make the film. John Boles in particular has some really great lines. My favorite line of the film was when the married Jim is trying to seduce Margaret on New Year's Eve and he takes her to his secret bachelor pad and tells Margaret that this is where he lives. Margaret says something like, `Strange it doesn't have a woman's touch.' And Jim replies that while he doesn't eat, sleep, or hang out with his family here, this is where he LIVES. Jim is just a pimp. While this film is difficult to see since they don't have it on video or show it on cable, it is really a must see movie for anyone interested in pre-code film. It is an absolutely wonderful movie.
