Wealthy socialite Elizabeth Flagg is courted by persistent Michael McLain, despite her protests that she is a married woman. McLain is just charming enough to attract Elizabeth into a series of harmless dalliances. But when he tries to extort money from her, they quarrel violently and she shoots at him with his own gun. McLain's wife Eva is arrested for his murder. With strong circumstantial evidence against her, Eva seems sure to be convicted... until the guilt-ridden Elizabeth persuades her own husband, defense attorney Tyler Flagg, to take the woman's case. He does so, but without knowing of his wife's involvement. Written by

Stronger Than Desire - what is it exactly? Ambition, survival, conscience? Will have to watch it again to check on that. Sometimes these titles seemed pretty random ... But, this is a good movie, not one that limped through on the strength of the stars or performances or scenery or some particular aspect which kind of made up for something else. It was overall good, I thought.
Everyone has favorites. Someone here cracked on Walter Pidgeon's diction - watch it! :-) Hey, they all spoke and dressed bigger than life in that era. Remember, movies were not mirrored to everyday life people back then. I personally enjoyed that.
Man, Lee Bowman's character should go down on the super slimy list. Don't remember seeing him do one like this before.
There really were a lot of characters in this. Ilka Chase (or "Jo") stood out to me. Didn't notice her in anything before this movie. True, her friend support was pretty effusive, but I liked her. If unknown to you and you are curious as well, click on her name in the cast listing for IMDb's info on her. Very interesting. Surprising.
