Even though the "Motion Picture Production Code" was established in 1930 its enforcement was not truly done until 1934. Evidence of that is during the dance hall scene where Vivienne Osborne is seen with significant side breast exposure. See more »
Robinson is excellent in a film of suspect morality
Edward G. Robinson stars as a nice guy construction worker who meets and falls for a dance hall girl who gets him drunk and tricks him into marrying her. Robinson and his buddy argue over her on the job and his buddy falls to his death. Grief stricken, Robinson is unable to work and his wife goes back to her old ways to support him. A fantastic performance from Robinson anchors a fairly okay, hyper-melodramatic film that ultimately suggests it should be okay to your murder your wife if she turns to prostitution to support you. (Not really an opinion that stands up these days.)
