Its OK

Neil Dunlap (Clive Brook) marries burlesque performer Pansy (Ruth Chatterton) after a drunken night which he does not recall. His sister tries to convince him to dissolve the marriage as Pansy is not in the same social class as her lawyer brother. We are also introduced to Gustave (Paul Lukas) who is a friend of Neil's and who falls in love with Pansy. The film follows the story of her fight for acceptance from Neil while Gustave simultaneously plays his cards up front and asks for her love in return for his. She must choose between the two men.....

The film is OK. Ruth Chatterton plays her role well and it is good to see that she can give as good as she gets - she is also self-sacrificing and funny. Clive Brook is annoying in his drunk scenes but good when sober and Paul Lukas gives a determined performance as Gustave, who is a wealthy client of Neil's. There are some good scenes, eg, when Neil confronts Gustave about making love to Pansy and both men are brutally honest with each other......However, I felt that more could have happened during the course of the film. Still, it's OK.
