A risible love triangle yarn about human pettiness
23 November 2019 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

An American drama; A story about an American Army Lieutenant who tells his girlfriend that he has no intention of marrying her. She takes her revenge by romancing his commanding officer, but things get complicated when her sister falls for the Lieutenant. This pre-code melodrama about false accusation and a mix-up plot is contrived and has holes at almost every turn. It never really generates any suspense. The main characters are written as scoundrels without many redeeming features and it is too silly to be moving.
