Storyline

Two days before Marian and Ned are to be married, he is killed by the husband of a woman he was seeing on the side. Marian becomes withdrawn and they send her to the Canadian Rockies for rest. While on a walk, she accidentally falls off a ledge and twists her ankle. She is found and rescued by Dan Forrester and his dog Sandy. He visits Marian every day even though she is still bitter. When it is time to go, he asks her to marry him and she accepts even though she will never love again. Back home in Chicago, Dan dotes on Marian and even builds a house in the country for his 'perfect wife'. Everything is going well until Marian meets a brash young transport owner named Frank. She rejects his advances, but he persists. When Dan leaves on business, Frank entertains her every day and Marian realizes that she may find love again after all.

early Stanwyck
4 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Barbara Stanwyck is young and a lovely as a woman whose fiancée is killed by an angry husband just before their wedding. Embittered, she retreats to the mountains and finds healing in the affections of Frank Morgan, who plays a wealthy attorney who falls in love with her. Stanwyck marries him, though explains to poor Frank that she doesn't love him. Their bedrooms, therefore, are across the hall from one another. With money, social standing, beauty, and being married, which makes her unattainable, Stanwyck soon finds the men are crawling out of the woodwork, including a very young Lyle Talbot and Ricardo Cortz, who lands his plane on her lawn.

Morgan and Stanwyck are excellent and give the story a very touching quality. One scene struck me as a little odd, censorship wise: At the beginning of the film, Morgan rescues Stanwyck from a fall. The next day, he walks by her house and pokes his head in her bedroom to see how she's doing. She's in bed, recovering. He's invited in. The maid leaves the bedroom and closes the door. Either I'm getting too old or my sensibility is too modern, but I found this scene peculiar for 1934. I'd love to know how this got past the code since there was a big argument about "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." An unmarried woman, in her pajamas, entertaining a gentleman caller in her bedroom. Oh, well.
