Who else but Kay Francis has the ability to draw viewers into a contrived bit of make-believe and have it seem like a genuine Shakespearean tragedy? There is a scene in this picture where she glimpses her son's picture, after having given him up, that could make a stone cry. Miss Francis' talents for the melodramatic combine nicely with Roland Young's sardonic wit and with Frieda Inescort's gentle humility. Meanwhile, George Brent is on hand as the love interest, as he is in so many of the actress' pictures. His presence helps to balance the tears with just the right amount of testosterone and sex appeal.
