Dill and Mary fall while running in the rain leaving her skirt muddy and soaked from her hip to her knee. In the very next scene at the door, the mud stain is gone and upon entering the room her clothes are completely dry. See more »

The triangular tease of a jilted bride's pursuit of the man that got away, recognizing ultimately that her devotion is misplaced, and finally, aptly directed to her true heart's desire.
An ideal vehicle for Joan Crawford, and a role to which she applies herself consummately! The chemistry between Ms. Crawford and Clark Gable is palpable and registers like a blister. The ever-clever and witty Robert Montgomery is in fine form as the character of "Dill", and an apt foil for the combine of Ms. Crawford and Mr. Gable. I particularly enjoyed Frances Drake's portrayal of Connie, as her elegant piquancy in this characterization is right on the nose.
