The two lovers are living together and are not married as they hesitantly explain to her brother. They had made a promise as children to get married when they grew up, but they "didn't wait." It's an important plot point as it drives Cooper's actions when he discovers that Crawford and Young are living in sin. Written by
The British torpedo boat shown represents a 40-foot Costal Motor Boat designed by John I. Thornycroft & Company. A total of 39 were built for the Royal Navy by Thronycroft and other firms. Unlike shown in the film, the torpedo was not launched by gravity but was pushed back by long steel ram powered by a small cordite charge. And unlike as described in the film, the torpedo's motor was started by a tripwire connecting the torpedo with said steel ram (not upon contact with the water). One example of this class has survived, CMB-4, and is on display at the Imperial War Museum's facility at Duxford, Cambridgeshire, England. See more »
Although the story takes place in England, during the World War I period (1916), 'Joan Crawford''s hairstyles and clothes are all strictly contemporary, including some very striking Adrian creations that were the very trademark of the time and place when it was being filmed (Hollywood, 1933.)

Ponderous, miscast slog of a film. The performers try their best but only Cooper's character is believable. Crawford, Young and Tone are all supposed to be British born, none speak in anything but refined American accents. Their parts should have been played by Diana Wynyard, Ronald Coleman and Leslie Howard all truly English actors actively working in Hollywood at the time, the film would probably still have been a bore but at least it would have felt grounded in some kind of reality. MGM was trying to move Joan away from the shop girl roles that were her bread and butter at the time but this was an ill advised vehicle for her. Missing Hawks customary economy of timing and pace and a lacking any visual sense of time or place, Joan's clothes in particular are inappropriate and at times bizarre-one outfit looks like she has an ironing board attached to it!, you'd be better served to seek out other work by all involved.
