Trivia

The film's written foreword reads, "BROADWAY blazes through the cross currents of the breaking dusk. Its night with the shadows of its menace and cruel sword sweeps down unrelentlessly [sic] and swiftly on helpless souls, They, who lie before her, with their jewelled crowns, its night plunders and turns to flee when welcome dawn comes in across a sleeping sea."

Pleasure into business
25 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

It is one of the peculiar dichotomies of the early sound era that while some pretty racy stuff got into films the plots were at times downright Victorian. Such is the case of Morals For Women which holds aloft the double standard that women have.

Bessie Love trying to spread her wings in talkies stars here as a good time flapper girl who has to save her brother David Rollins when he clunks someone with a bottle in a nightclub brawl. The bottle containing some then illegal booze.

In any event for a $1000.00 Rollins's legal troubles will go away, but to raise the money Love has to turn her pleasures into business.

This is the time of film rest assured will not be remade. I think it was old fashioned even in 1931 despite the current music and fashions of the day on display.

Besides Rollins just needed a good lawyer and his good name would be cleared.
