Very episodic, overwrought drama with Myrna Loy succumbing to the overacting bug at times and Bill Powell rather stiff. They were always a great team but seem off their game here perhaps the mediocrity of the script failed to inspire their best work. The best performances come from the supporting players. Isabel Jewell is good as a wronged woman but without question Una Merkel steals the picture single handedly saving this from total soap opera with her terrific wisecracking. Rosalind Russell made her film debut here but is wasted as a devious society harlot. Even with its brief running time the film trudges along at a deadly dull pace making it seem interminable. The ending is too precious for words.
