Storyline

Shelby Barrett (Barbara Stanwyck) rides show horses for wealthy widow "Nicko" Nicholas (Genevieve Tobin)and meets Johnny Wyatt (Gene Raymond), scion of a once-wealthy Long Island Family, but who now goes about the country riding polo ponies for "Nicko." Despite the efforts of "Nicko" and wealthy Gene Fairchild (John Eldredge), who is in love with Shelby, Johnny and Shelby are married. Shelby is treated frigidly by her snobby-but-broke in-laws, who frown even more when she and Johnny start handling the horses for wealthy neighbors on money Shelby had borrowed from Fairchild without telling her proud-but-broke husband. Matters aren't helped any when "Nicko" shows up and starts a gossip circuit directed against Shelby. When Johnny is away, Fairchild asks Shelby to help him entertain a wealthy client aboard his yacht. She tries to contact Johnny and fails but accepts the invitation. The customer shows up drunk with a likewise female companion, who manages to fall overboard and drown but ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Woman in Red, The (1935)

** (out of 4)

A horse jokey (Barbara Stanwyck) and a polo player (Gene Raymond) both make their living off of a rich woman (Genevieve Tobin) but when Stanwyck and Raymond elope it doesn't sit too well with Tobin. Soon Tobin shows up to try and steal the man since the new couple are quickly going broke. This is yet another quickie from Warner that lasts only 66-minutes but it feels much longer due to the screenplay being routine and the performances less than good. The love triangle has been done countless times but so has the going broke and looking for the rich woman routine. This film is unoriginal from start to finish and that's what eventually kills the film. Stanwyck sleepwalks through here role, which isn't the norm for her. Raymond gets credit for being one of the worst leading man I've seen from this period as he turns in a super dull performance. Tobin adds a little life to the film but she can't do much with the way her role is written. Edward Van Sloan has a brief cameo and is listed as "Ed" in the credits.
