I'm not a snob, but in case you'd like to call here again, I'd like to point out that although I'm employed by my aunt, I'm not in Dora's position.
Well, I hope not. I am gonna marry her though, and I...
I don't believe you.
You don't believe me, do you?
Your eyes are set quite wide apart... and your hands are quite good, but I really don't know what's wrong with you.
Like me, do you?

I had never heard of this movie. I watched it the other night on Turner Movie Classics.
Robert Montgomery is amazing in this role. His subtle English accent reminded me of Paul McCartney. He is totally immersed in this role.
Rosalind Russell is not that impressive until about the middle of the movie.
Her unwilling attraction to Babyface finally makes sense.
The other great performance was by Dame May Witty. She fell hook, line, and sinker for Babyface.
Had Babyface not been so self-destructive and amoral probably Mrs. Bramson would have left him her entire estate.
I strongly recommend this movie. It is beautifully filmed, directed, and acted. It is one of those movies made in the 30s that is surprisingly better than many of today's movies, and much more intrinsic in its twists and turns. All of the characters are defined and varied.
This could give Hitchcock a run for his money.
