She also officially requested that Robert Montgomery play the lead actor role. See more »

Any use in my telling you that you're making a mistake? No, I didn't think there was.
No power on earth can stop me.

This movie was pure soap opera for 1931 audiences. Today it's rather "talkie" and the moral standards of the film by today's liberal standards are laughable. But the great Norma Shearer is always fun to watch, and Norma never looked better on the screen. Her Adrian designed gowns are breathtaking and she is nothing short of ravishing.
