Jane is gorgeous in this her second film but wasn't ready for a part that required a haunted bruised quality like this does. Missing from her performance is the permeating sadness of a woman who has lost her true love, something that Barbara Stanwyck could have injected in the part without breaking a sweat, still she makes a good try and practically glows on screen. The real reason to watch this is for the supporting cast. Connie Gilchrist and Cora Witherspoon make a fun pairing as Jane's opposite sides of a coin aunts back on the farm. Marie Wilson is charming as her usual ditzy blonde but it's Penny Singleton of Blondie fame who really delivers the best performance as an old friend of Jane's character who provides a nest for her to recover from her heartbreak. She's funny and strong by turns and enjoyable throughout.
