Pre-Code early-talkie film version of Philip Barry's Broadway hit chronicles the first five years of marriage between James and Mary Hutton, and the two paramours they deserted who wait patiently - and manipulatively - in the wings.

Tallulah Bankhead and Fredric March get second chances in the drama My Sin. He's an alcoholic lawyer and she's a loose nightclub singer. When she gets arrested for murder, no one will defend her except Freddie, since his career can sink no lower. Then, when she's acquitted, they both vow to make fresh starts-she moves away and even takes a new name!
Tallulah Bankhead is a lovely, sultry actress, who preferred the stage to the screen. If you're lucky enough to find one of the few movies she made, you're in for a real treat. If you like Barbara Stanwyck, you'll like Tallu; they're both tough yet very emotional. She carries the spirit of this movie on her shoulders, and she effortlessly shifts from tough to confident to classy to romantic. She and Freddie make a darling pair, even when they're just leaning on each other in friendship, and this movie will probably make you wish they made more movies together! I liked this cute drama, and it's pretty short so you can pair it with another old flick for a double feature!
