There were scenes shot of Crawford and Tracy aboard ship, probably on their way to their European honeymoon, evidenced by stills of Crawford from this film standing at a ship's rail in an evening gown and jacket that appear nowhere else. These scenes apparently were later cut. See more »
John Crawford plays a poor girl living in a rundown apartment with her parents who begs her boyfriend (Alan Curtis) to marry her so that she can get out of where she lives. Hours after the marriage, a rich man (Spencer Tracy) gets talking to the couple and soon tries to get Crawford to leave with him. At first she refuses but then her husband starts showing signs of her father in that he has no big plans for the future. THis film isn't anything special but the performances make it worth watching. Crawford comes off very believable here as the poor girl who wants something in her life yet has to struggle with her family and then husband to get it. Tracy is also very charming here and comes off quite strong. His calm and cool touch comes off very well for the character. Ralph Morgan has a nice supporting role and Leo Gorcey plays Crawford's lazy brother. The screenplay is pretty weak and predictable from start to finish but that doesn't keep the entertainment value down.
