Considered a flop in the past(it is the film that got Joan labeled box office poison, despite the fact that the film before it, Mrs. Cheyney, was a big hit), viewed today, it is incredible how much Joan gave to an obviously butchered script. Her scenes alone in her "ivory tower" of a room, especially when she notices that the birds have gone from their nest, are acting in it's highest form. Strangely, this is one of a number of films where she plays the working girl that we DO NOT feel much sympathy for her.
